Just Stop

The Church needs to stop with the Op Eds and the bull shit from people like Bill
Donahue.

If I was talking to the Pope right now I would tell him what I think we Catholics need from our Church.
I need to hear is this:
quia peccavi
nimis cogitatione, verbo et opere:
mea culpa,
mea culpa,
mea maxima culpa.

I want to hear repentance.
I want 2011 to be the year The Church goes though a deep and meaningful penance.
I want the Pope and the Cardinals and the Bishops to throw off their vestments and wear some form of sack cloth and ashes for that year.
I don't want the Pope to resign, I want him to take responsibility.
I'd like to see the church bring any victim to Rome who is willing and have the Pope personally apologize to them.
I want them all to say over and over again (and I don't care that it is no longer happening or that most of them were never involved or that a good amount of the perps are dead):
"We have sinned grievously"

That's what I would tell the Pope The Church needs to do to fix this.

And maybe let priests marry, so the priesthood takes in people who are motivated for the right reasons.
