A priest’s involvement in a sexual relationship, for example, even though it might be consensual, could be regarded as a form of abuse of power and trust because of the position the priest and the pledge he made at his priestly ordination to live in celibacy.
When a priest is involved in sexual scandal, the church would feel the pain and confusion. The trust placed in priests is gradually eroded and could be lost completely.
When the trust is lost, the power or influence of the priests and moral voices are weakened and could even disappear.
