Bishops accused of child abuse should remain silent like Christ

Pope Francis said that Bishops accused of child abuse should remain silent like Jesus on Good Friday when crowds called for his s crucifixion.

As the Catholic church begins to sink in the child abuse scandal, the Pontiff pointed out that people insulted Jesus on Good Friday and shouted, “Crucify him" comparing church accused of pedophilia to Christ.

Francis continued referring to Jesus in his morning homily at the chapel of the Santa Marta residence:

“...he remained silent because he had compassion for those people deceived by the powerful.”

“He was silent. He prayed,” Francis said.

“In the same way, the pastor, in difficult times, in times when the devil is unleashed, where the pastor is accused—accused by the Great Accuser through so many people, so many powerful ones—suffers, offers his life and prays,” the pope said.

Breitbart reports:: At the conclusion of the homily, Francis invited the congregation to pray for the bishops.

“Take up the Gospel and read, and see Jesus, and where his authority lies. And ask the grace that all pastors may have this authority: an authority that is a grace of the Holy Spirit,” he said.

Tuesday’s homily marked the fourth occasion in two weeks where the pope decried the action of those who accuse bishops, comparing them to the devil, the “Great Accuser.”

Last week, Francis compared Vatican whistleblower Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò to Satan, the “Great Accuser,” after Viganò released an 11-page document filled with allegations of the mishandling of serial homosexual abuser Cardinal Theodore McCarrick by high-ranking prelates, including the pope himself.

In these times “it seems that the Great Accuser has been unleashed and has it in for the bishops,” the pope said.

“It is true, we are all sinners, we bishops,” he said, but the Great Accuser “seeks to unveil sins so that they may be seen, to scandalize the people.”
