A test of faith for devout Catholics

A VATICAN cleric recently said the greatest trick Satan ever played was to convince humanity that he doesn't exist.
If such an evil entity does exist, then he must be overwhelmed with joy at the exodus of Catholics turning secular through despair at the ongoing revelations of sexual abuse cover-ups within the Catholic Church.
Instead of running away like cowards, Christians must stand up and reclaim their church in crisis and treat the exposure, grotesque that it may be, as a watershed in a new beginning to strengthen Christian faith and rid the church of a minority of corrupt, evil clergy.
