… Poor Fr. Groeschel. He’s 78, you know. Even at 36 I find it hard at times to fully articulate what I’m trying to convey. It happens to the best of us.
Personally, I don’t think he had a single thing to apologize for.
“I apologize for my comments. I did not intend to blame the victim. A priest (or anyone else) who abuses a minor is always wrong and is always responsible. My mind and my way of expressing myself are not as clear as they used to be. I have spent my life trying to help others the best that I could. I deeply regret any harm I have caused to anyone.” – Fr. Benedict Groeschel
