Perry has now spent 137 days in jail – for stepping up to the plate to protect children, and then daring to say he has lost faith in the justice system. This is the institutional response to allegations of childhood sexual abuse.
NOTE: Perry’s birthday is 22 July 2008. He will be 47. Pick up a card now. Have Masses said for him. Swamp him with love – lots of cards, letters and notes of best wishes.

Hearings have recessed until Monday 14 July 2008. Jacques Leduc will take the stand.
An early early wrap up today. Swish bang! Father Kevin Maloney was on and off the stand.
I don’t even know what time it was all over – I think perhaps around 11:15 am?
Will blog on the morning’s events later. I need a breather 🙂 This is all disgusting beyond words.
For now a few thoughts to ponder on the priesthood from three great Saints of the Church:
(1) “The priest by nature is like all other men; by dignity he surpasses every other man on earth; by his conduct he ought to compare with the angels. ” ( St Bernard)
(2) “Great is the dignity of priests; but also, when they sin, great is their ruin. Let us rejoice at having been raised so high, but let us be afraid of falling.” (St. Jerome)
(3) “Hell is paved with priests’ skulls.” (St. John Chrysostom)
Enough for now,
