“O God, you know my foolishness, and my faults are not hidden from you.
“Let not those who hope in you be put to shame through me, Lord God of hosts; let not those who seek you be disgraced of me, O God of Israel.” [Ps. 69:6 & 7]
Sobering thoughts for those in positions of moral and spiritual leadership, leaders in the Church, priests and bishops of our Church. If this consideration was in the forefront of our thoughts, much of the mess within the Church might be alleviated.
