The Stranger in the Corner

A priest was arrested for allegedly exposing himself to an undercover police officer. That’s what this morning’s local newscast reported. After watching this my 11-year-old son, Zac, turned to me and asked, “How could he do something like that if he’s a priest?”

Just the other day a friend was complaining that his father showed little interest in his life. My friend got more compliments and interest in his work from total strangers than he did from his own father. He wondered, “How could he be so disinterested in me? After all, he’s my father.”
