Some Perspective

I've been zipping around St. Blogs, and there are a lot of people upset at various examples of episcopal evil. My response? Be upset, of course. But have faith! Things have always been thus. When Henry VIII broke the Church of England away from Rome so he could get a divorce, guess how many bishops refused to go with him. There's one. He's a saint, John Fisher. The rest betrayed Christ with breathtaking ease.

It isn't news that most bishops are poor sinners. Most humans are poor sinners. Did you think baptism or ordination made us perfect?
