Tyler parishioners like Paula Bartleg are sending prayers to Dallas, to the bishops who are banding together for answers.
"From a business perspective I want the bishops to come up with a policy and then enforce it," says Bartleg. "From a spiritual standpoint--renew their faith and bring that back to the diocese."
At Tyler's Cathedral of Immaculate Conception, Monsignor Joe Strickland believes the Bishops must come up a better solution. Unlike the first resolution, where one section says priests who were involved in only one sexual assault should be allowed to remain a part of the clergy--so long he's been reformed. "If someone has this sickness or this inability to control themselves, is it ever just one," Says Strickland. "Frankly, if it was just one, it's well over one too many!"
