I have seen some lately, painting with a broad brush, in regards to the sex abuse in the Catholic Church. Most of which are bundling ALL Catholics together as being evil and pedophiles. To those who refuse to see the big picture in regards to this being a much bigger problem and not just Catholic, but being a serious offence in every walk of life, taking place in every institution, I offer you my prayers.
Do you know why a leopard hangs around the well? For an easy meal. It is not there to help anyone but itself to those who do not see it camouflaged before it kills. It preys on the “least”.
A leopard doesn’t change its spots. It uses them for camouflage. If one states they are a teacher, coach, priest preacher, father, mother etc, but makes a decision to use that profession as a mask for evil to sin, they are not a teacher, coach priest etc, but simply a predator in a mask, like a leopard at the well seeking another meal.
To those who say “Once a priest, always a priest” I answer you, yes. But never forget, what our Lord demanded of “The True Disciple.”
To the “leopards”, He sees you – REPENT. Only He can change your spots.
Notice the rope for the “leopard”. As long as it stays a “leopard”, it can not climb to escape.
