Don't "Punish" the Lord

        I've known Catholics who left the Church because a priest was not sensitive to a parishioner's needs or advised without showing sufficient love.  This is most fortunate.  We should concentrate on Jesus alone.  Do not be disturbed by anyone, priest or lay Catholic, who does not reflect the light of the Lord.  We should never loosen our hold on Christ.  Bad Catholics do not equate bad Jesus.  It's unfair to "punish" the Lord for the sins of his followers.  When you are no longer bothered by others' misdeeds and have learned to forgive, you'll have peace, still keeping your faith in and love for Christ intact.
