Prayer Request for a priest in crisis
Spiritual Mothers of Priests and friends, please pray for Father RT. who will, during the coming
week, be sentenced in PA for the offence of storing pornography on his computer There seems to have been no evidence that he has ever been an active abuser, nor have there been any reports (to my knowledge) that anyone has come forward to accuse him of sexual abuse. I think we can therefore pray for a light sentence and that the priest will reform. He has been in a treatment centre since his case broke earlier this year. I know about all this because it came as the most terrible shock to a very dear spiritual sister of mine, to whom Fr T. had in the past, been a trusted spiritual mentor and friend. She has been devastated by the revelation but prays for him without ceasing. Please pray for her too, and for anyone else who is going through a similar agony, connected with Fr T or with other priests.
