Irreparable Damage to Pro-Life & Family Causes Calls for Sanctification by Fr. Shenan J. Boquet

By Their Fruits Ye Shall Know Them

“The tree is made manifest by its fruit; so those that profess themselves to be Christians shall be recognized by their conduct.” 

Ignatius of Antioch, Epistle to the Ephesians 14

There are so many reasons to weep over the new revelations of sex abuse and other grave moral failings by some priests and bishops within the Catholic Church: the unimaginable suffering of the victims, the lost faith of the millions of Catholics scandalized by these latest revelations, and the missed vocations by the many good men who were turned away or left the seminary after witnessing scandalous behaviour among their peers and superiors.
For me, in my role as president of Human Life International, there is one additional cause for sorrow: the irreparable damage that this crisis has done to the pro-life and pro-family cause. In truth, these latest revelations have made my job, and the job of so many pro-life leaders, so much more difficult than it already was.
Throughout the past century, as our culture has abandoned the truths about Life and Family, the Catholic Church has remained conspicuously unmoved…
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Shenan J. Boquet
President, Human Life International
