When Reporting, Use Caution

Earlier today on Canon212, Mr. Walker had a link to a story on the blog TraditionInAction. I’m not posting the link at this time for a very specific reason. The article appears to be an expose of sorts on a sordid subject. The post relates details of something that, if true (and I think it probably is), is not only shocking but also deeply perverse. The subject focuses on sex. As the Catechism of Trent said (paraphrasing): “About this subject [sins against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments] very little need be spoken publicly due to the very nature of the subject and its propensity to arouse deep passions. Rather pastors should take pains to preach the virtues and deal with individuals on an individual basis.”

Anyway, I just wanted to toss that out there tonight before bed. As I said, my journalistic sense tells me that the items related in that TIA post are likely accurate. I will mull over whether I will share the link with a warning that it leads to some graphic content. I do NOT want to be party to anyone else’s struggles with chastity. There really is a lot within that post, though, on which I would like to comment so let’s just say that it’s likely coming tomorrow.

In the meantime, say a prayer for our priests.
