If you haven’t heard, a priest of the Palm Beach Diocese has admitted to “violations of chastity”. My purpose is not to discuss this issue but to address a comment made on the Palm Beach Post website in regard to this story. The commenter said he left the Catholic Church, specifically my parish, after we were robbed and he saw the pastor smoking. Now, someone did steal the collection over Thanksgiving weekend 3 years ago and our pastor smokes. Why leave the Church because of those two things? It is so sad the excuses people will use to justify their actions.
