Pope Francis recommends silence and prayer to react to those seeking scandal and division. Francis offered the advice Monday in his homily at Mass in the Vatican hotel where he lives. Italian Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, a former papal envoy in Washington, stunned the faithful last month by claiming Francis allegedly lifted unconfirmed Vatican sanctions against disgraced U.S. prelate Theodore McCarrick.Francis has said he “won’t say a word” about Vigano’s allegations that Benedict XVI as pope had sanctioned McCarrick, including avoiding public life, but that Francis later allegedly lifted the sanctions.Francis said Monday Jesus’ grace helps people discern when to speak and “when we should stay silent.”

    As a young boy my mother wanted me to be an altarboy at a catholic church on the south side of Chicago . I told her I couldn’t memorize Latin to get out of it , but the real reason was a friend told me one of the priests was known to touch some of the boys inappropriately .Combined with the whoopings from the nuns , I told my dad and he pulled us all , 5 kids , out of that school and we moved out when I turned 16 . I never went to Catholic mass again !
