Most Recent News of Clergy Abuse:

Archbishop Sample’s Response

Dear Clergy, Religious, and Lay Faithful of the Archdiocese of Portland,

Like many of you, I was shocked, angered, and  discouraged by the recent revelations concerning retired Archbishop Theodore McCarrick. Then came the release of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury report on clergy sex abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses, covering more than seven decades. These horrific revelations are particularly painful in light of what victims in our own Archdiocese have suffered and the impact that sexual abuse has had on the Church here. I am sorry beyond words for the harm that has been done.

These most recent accusations and details expose - yet again - certain systematic and profound failures of episcopal leadership in our Church. These failures are both institutional and spiritual in nature, and date back many decades. First, it is an institutional failure for the Church, in that this is not just a matter of a refusal to follow policies or of negligent oversight; but rather, at least in the McCarrick case, that someone entrusted with pastoral responsibility and care could, apparently, act in such a heinously sinful and criminal manner. It is also an institutional failure that someone like this could rise to such a high level unimpeded and without being challenged or held accountable. As for the Grand Jury report, amidst the sordid and graphic descriptions of clerical sex abuse it tells of yet more examples of Church leaders covering up, keeping quiet or looking the other way when confronted with allegations of evil among their own. All of these allegations should have been brought to light much sooner; and then dealt with swiftly, justly, and transparently.

Second, the tragedy of clerical sex abuse is a profound spiritual failure; and especially so when someone called to be a good shepherd, to live a  holy and chaste life consecrated to Christ and his people, and to serve as Jesus served, acts in such a gravely sinful, evil manner. If bishops, clergy, and religious lose the personal relationship with God, a way of life at odds with the Gospel often results. This diminishes or quenches the flame of love and life in Christ that we must have in serving the  People of God. . . .
