8/2/19 St. Nicholas News - Letter to a Suffering Church #2
What does the Bible say about the sexual abuse crisis?
This week we continue our parish-wide study of Bishop Robert Barron’s new book,
Letter to a Suffering Church
, by exploring Chapter 2, titled
“Light from Scripture”.
Bishop Barron notes how this terrible abuse crisis has been analyzed from numerous perspectives: psychological, interpersonal, criminal, cultural, etc.
These are each important, but the problem will not be adequately investigated until we see it in the light coming from the Word of God.
As it turns out, the Bible has a great deal to say about human sexuality and the myriad ways that sin twists and distorts it.
Watch this short video from Bishop Barron on how the Bible sheds light on our current crisis:

There will be a second collection this weekend for the mission appeal for the Province of Our Lady of Consolation Conventual Franciscan Friars.
They help support friars in Central America, Zambia, and India. Their Province provides support to the poorest of the poor in these countries. Many people in these areas are affected by poverty, hunger, and natural disasters. Please show your support and generosity for this mission appeal.
