Archbishop Vigneron on Recent News Concerning Clergy Sexual Abuse

Archbishop of Detroit Allen H. Vigneron on Monday released a letter to the faithful, offering prayers for victims of clergy abuse and affirming the need for accountability among clergy. The letter was written in anticipation of the release of a grand jury report on clergy abuse in Pennsylvania and in light of revelations of misconduct by former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.

“My prayers today are with the victims of abuse at the hands of clergy worldwide, particularly those represented in the grand jury report in Pennsylvania. The allegations contained in that report, as well as recent allegations of sinful behavior involving former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick – regardless of when and where they happened – are daunting tests of faith for you in the Church, her leadership and our ongoing efforts towards abuse prevention and response.”

Bishop Barron~Word on Fire

The McCarrick Mess

When I was going through school, the devil was presented to us as a myth, a literary device, a symbolic manner of signaling the presence of evil in the world. I will admit to internalizing this view and largely losing my sense of the devil as a real spiritual person. What shook my agnosticism in regard to the evil one was the clerical sex abuse scandal of the nineties and the early aughts. I say this because that awful crisis just seemed too thought-through, too well-coordinated, to be simply the result of chance or wicked human choice. The devil is characterized as “the enemy of the human race” and particularly the enemy of the Church. I challenge anyone to come up with a more devastatingly effective strategy for attacking the mystical body of Christ than the abuse of children and young people by priests. This sin had countless direct victims of course, but it also crippled the Church financially, undercut vocations, caused people to lose confidence in Christianity, dramatically compromised attempts at evangelization, etc., etc. It was a diabolical masterpiece.

Why Accompaniment Involves Apologetics

I recently granted an interview to the National Catholic Reporter concerning the upcoming Synod on Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment, to which I was elected a delegate. In the course of the conversation, I stated that I would bring the issue of apologetics before the Synod, since so many young people have questions about, and objections to, the faith. But when the interview appeared, the author expressed her puzzlement that I would mention apologetics, though it is clear that the working document calls for “accompaniment” of young people. It seems many think doing apologetics and accompaniment are mutually exclusive. To my mind, they’re mutually implicative.

Por Qué Acompañar Implica Apologética

Recientemente concedí una entrevista al National Catholic Reporter acerca del Sínodo sobre los jóvenes, la fe y el discernimiento vocacional que se avecina, y del cual he sido elegido delegado. A lo largo de la conversación, afirmé que sacaré el tema de la apologética ante el Sínodo, pues muchos jóvenes tienen preguntas y objeciones sobre la fe. Pero cuando la entrevista apareció, el autor se mostraba asombrado de que yo mencionara el tema de la apologética, a pesar de que el documento preparatorio del Sínodo hiciera una llamada clara al “acompañamiento” de la gente joven. Al parecer muchos piensan que acompañar y hacer apologética son caminos mutuamente excluyentes. A mi modo de ver se implican mutuamente.
