The Church in Crisis Needs Saints – Aug 20 – Homily – Fr Alan
In the homily for the memorial of St. Bernard of Clairvaux (Abbot and Doctor of the Church, Aug 20) Fr. Alan explains that the Church, once again mired in sexual abuse allegations, needs saints to overcome this crisis. Public relations consultants and lawyers will not help the hierarchy bring about the needed reform; only holy ministers, consecrated religious, and laity can do this.
