Fr. Z has a very good post which discusses the suffering that innocent priests suffer amidst the scandal that is taking place in Ireland. It also discusses the role of bishops and how the selection of bishops has changed over the decades (fewer from the diplomatic ranks and more with a heavier theological background, or forthright in teaching the faith - a pretty good indicator that the Holy Father sees what is needed in bishops today).
After looking at what some other priests have to say about what is taking place in Ireland, Fr. Z points to the words of the Holy Father. This is a must read for priests and seminarians, and a worthy read for the rest of us...
