A month ago, the Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania made public a Report of a statewide investigating grand jury, which detailed credible allegations of sexual abuse of children and youth in six dioceses in Pennsylvania, and shortcomings in the ways that such allegations were handled by diocesan administrators, particularly diocesan bishops, over the years.

Christ is risen! Truly He is risen! Alleluia!

The Good News that Jesus Christ is risen from the dead has transformed the whole world, yet we receive it in the midst of our ordinary lives.  While we struggle against old habits and strive for conversion of heart, the Risen Lord reminds us that He has come “that [we] may have life, and have it abundantly” (Jn 10:10).

“I am glad that we are talking about ‘homosexual people’ because before all else comes the individual person, in his wholeness and dignity.

– Pope Francis, The Name of God is Mercy
