This is what our Lord thinks about having patience with priests and bishops and Apostles. Yikes!

Thank you. I had been listening to too much negative negatives lately. This was a negative positive
Also, remember that big mega novena we said for Father G? I think that one of the fruits of that work of spiritual mercy was his confession to all his readers of the moment of his weakness. I was very moved by your tender words to him/us about that. It might have been good for Father G to hear us say “we forgive you, Father.”
Hmm, for some reason I was just thoughtful of the Holy Father.
I forgive you, Father!
It is serendipitous that this morning my coworker told me that she had been thinking quite a bit about last things, and wanted my forgiveness for all the arguments we had with one another. I assured her that I have always forgiven her every night, before I went to bed, and hoped that she would begin to forgive me my transgressions against her every night.
We worked today in the peace that only the Lord can give. Thanks be to God.
Don’t take this the wrong way, but I have thought at various times over the years there is nothing in the world more disappointing than a priest, because one wants and indeed needs him to be Jesus. In the ways that count ultimately, it has been given to him to act in the person of Jesus Christ. But in himself, he is not Jesus. And yet he gives us Jesus. When one finds a priest who resembles Jesus, one finds a treasure. There is no one who has spent much time in the Church who doesn’t need to forgive some priest or priests. In a way it can be especially hard because in some way he has the place of Jesus in our life. He should be perfect and do all things well! But, then, I too am baptized and a member of Christ and how am I doing with being perfect and doing all things well? Jesus have mercy on me a sinner, and on my priest.
