The current Church scandal is something that should inspire those who are appalled (and I hope you are) to become more devoted to the faith than ever. Rather than taking the supposedly logical and seemingly legitimate route of declaring “the Church” hypocritical and walking away, it makes much more sense to see these horrific events as a sign that each individual person should be more devoted than ever to the Church and the most steadfast adherence to matters of faith than ever and this is why:
What we have seen and witnessed and many suffered through is NOT what happens when the faith is well practiced and Church law is attended to, it is what happens when the faith is NOT practiced and Church law is subverted at a time when far too many people have been content to have the both run on autopilot.
In a similar vein, I am always amazed at how people think that just because their car is parked in a church parking lot that they can leave their car unlocked and their purse full of money on the front seat and that it should be Okay because it is on Church property. I have not heard of a parish yet that has not experienced theft. Church attracts sinners - some working at overcoming sin (that is hopefully most of us) and those who are looking for cover. So if we want our parishes to be safe, we have to be vigilant and not leave the collection sitting in a pew, the candle boxes left unlocked, the payroll just sitting out on a desk.
The practice of the faith is just the same and from time to time, like an audit pointing out financial practices that have slipped, the practice of the faith needs constant renewal. And when renewal has happened historically, it has always occurred when individual men and women have decided to take their faith seriously and live it actively and publicly.
IF YOU DO NOT LIKE THE EVIL THAT SOME HAVE DONE IN THE CHURCH then do not give up on the right practice of faith for it is vehemently opposed to such things. If you want such evil actions to spread and become more common, then abandon the faith which is one of the few organized and powerful voices in the world still standing against such things.
But it needs you to live it. The Kingdom of God exists in this world as “already/not-yet.” It is already breaking into the world since Jesus Christ, but it will not be fully established until He comes again. Until then, it exists where men and women of good faith live it.
