Growing up as a Catholic, I revered all priests and placed them on a pedestal. My mom and the nuns in school taught me that priests were Christ-like and were doing God's work. I believed that then and I believe it now. The trouble is that not too many other people believe in priests now. The Catholic Church has been rocked on its heels by this ongoing child sex abuse scandal and being a Catholic these days takes a lot of faith. But faith is what sustains us. When I was in elementary school, Father Riggie taught me how to be an altar boy. In those days, altar boys had to make the responses at Mass in Latin and Father Riggie made sure we didn't slur our words.
