THE CLERGY SEX ABUSE SCANDAL AND THE ASSAULT ON GUAM

As you know the Catholic Church on Guam is under attack from an organization that calls itself SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests). For most of us, our Faith will not be shaken by whatever allegations they may bring to the public since our Faith is not in men, not even in the priesthood, but in Jesus Christ himself who promised us that the "gates of hell would not prevail" (Mt. 16:18).

And for some of us, our faith will even be strengthened. We will become all the more adamant and motivated to defend our Catholic Faith because of these attacks. However, others, sadly, will allow their faith to be weakened, and some will use it as an excuse to leave The Faith. Thus, I would like to share, simply as a lay person, with no "letters before or after my name" a few thoughts in the hopes that this little episode will be seen as an invitation from Our Lord to become even more militant in our war against Satan on all fronts.
