I wrote a small piece yesterday about some of my thoughts on our Pope Benedict XVI. Watching the Mass he celebrated yesterday at Yankee Stadium was a most moving experience for me. He is so much better than his predecessor that I am confident he will be able to cure some of the ills in the church, especially the problem with gay and pedophile priests in the United States – something to which the previous pope was completely oblivious.
Watching my own parish in my hometown, I often wondered why the church there hired openly flaming gay priests. In a way, I have little quarrel with someone wishing to adopt a gay lifestyle – it is not my cup of tea – for what one does with his or her personal life is within him/her self. But to put gay individuals in the close proximity to young boys is just asking for trouble. The Gay community insists that being gay is different than being a pedophile. But you really need to prove this. This assertion begs the question and has absolutely no evidence to support it. But be that as it may, the Catholic Church in America was desperate because noone was entering the priesthood and they just "looked the other way" when recruiting priests.
Recently, they have and are continuing to pay the price of their laxity. Pope John Paul II was, as I said, completely oblivious to this problem. For this he should never be considered for sainthood because he is not worthy of it. He, single-handed, set the Roman Catholic Church back 2,000 years. I am hoping Pope Benedict XVI will do better. Already, I like what I am seeing. This man is holy, sincere, and is not afraid to tackle the serious spiritual problems facing our Modern World.
As I said in my previous Blog, I am now proud to admit: "I am a Roman Catholic."
