Plaintiff in Kentucky lawsuit is reconciled with Catholic Church
August 16, 2010
One of the named plaintiffs in a lawsuit that had named the Vatican as a defendant, has been reconciled with the Catholic Church after 80 years of alienation.
James O'Bryan, who reported being abused by a priest in 1928, had left the Catholic Church at that time. His return to the faith came through the ministry of a priest who presided at the funeral of his wife, and welcomed O'Bryan back.

Just goes to show what good a priest with sound pastoral instincts and skills can do for the Church--or, rather, what good the Holy Spirit can accomplish through such a priest. As a good priest-friend of mine says, being a good pastor isn't rocket science; just reach out to the faithful and show them you appreciate them!

First Zsa Zsa asks for a priest for Last Rites, now this. I can't take much more good news about the Church.
