    In light of the recent scandals, I know many people are wondering whether they should remain in the Catholic Church.  And I totally get that; the outrage is warranted.  
        But in this time of crisis, I beg you not to flee, but to fight--not violently, with the weapons of the world, but with the weapons of the Spirit.  
        Please watch and share my most recent video with your family, friends, and pastor.
