ABSTRACT
In this article the author comments on clergy sex scandal. He is critical of the media coverage of the issue, which he believes magnifies the problem and overlooks the good deeds of other priests like the Benedictine monk the author met in Rome. The author also believes that priests involved in sexual abuse of minors not only betray celibacy but they also failed to show love for children which is part of the priestly vocation.
