A Spotlight on Spotlight

Why the Boston Globe priest scandal deserved an Oscar…

Spotlight aims a spotlight
on a scandal long ignored
where 'men of God' abused the innocent.
The Globe revealed a heinous crime
that reaches 'round the world.
A crime for which the flames of Hell are meant.

When Cardinal Law dispensed cheap grace
and harbored guilty priests,
the Gospel he proclaimed was for the birds.
The Lord reserves a millstone
for those leading kids astray
so we'd do well to heed the Savior's words.

Let's ask the Lord to heal the wounds
of those who doubt His love
and cannot trust His Church although they try.
These countless victims of abuse
still languish in their shame
not knowing what's the truth and what's a lie.
