Not the Transfiguration

On a day when I could have been looking at neat paintings of the transfiguration, I was instead reading about clergy sexual misconduct (O'Brien, Mahony, Vatileaks, etc). It seems like Catholicism is often not about the gospel story but about the institution's story, and that story is often about messed-up sex. It makes me feel tired :(
