The pilgrimage to the Martyr's Shrine in Midland was a success. It was attended by some priests and 36 seminarians as well as by 300 faithful. Fr.

The biased and one-sided media relishes publishing sex abuse cases involving catholic clergy. They knowingly omit that this immoral behavior is not exclusive to clergy but is common amongst laypeople. Not only do they smear the good reputation of the overwhelming 98% plus majority of good priests but they alledge that priestly celibacy is the cause of this abuse. This is simply false. Priestly celibacy is a necessary means for priestly holiness. This issue and its real causes are discussed in this letter.

Pray for the priests of Campos who have accepted a practical agreement with Rome; details are discussed herein.
