Bishop LeGatt : God's Hope in the Midst of Deep Sadness

The recent sentencing of a St. Boniface priest for sexual assault of a minor may bring about many intense emotions, feelings, and thoughts. Some of these may include righteous anger or incredulity, but they all have, at their core, a deep sadness. This sadness is experienced by all: clergy and faithful alike. But through God’s grace, we shall get through this painful chapter, together.
We urge you to pray for the victims of clergy sexual abuse. The life-lasting effects of these terrible crimes can be extremely painful. May the Lord pour his love and healing graces upon them. We also pray for those clergymen found guilty of such crimes. May the Lord grant them his pardon and healing.
