Cut ties with abusive priests to purify Church, says top Vatican prosecutor
Catholic World News - May 31, 2010
The Vatican's chief prosecutor in sex-abuse cases said that the process of removing abusive priests from the clergy is a form of "divine surgery" allowing for purification of the Church.
Preaching a meditation during a service of Eucharistic adoration at the Vatican in reparation for the abuse scandal, Msgr. Charles Scicluna said that while God can forgive all sins, priests who violate the innocence of children have offended so egregiously that the community of faithful must sever ties with them.
