We have witnessed the downfall of so many “famous” Catholics—including priests—who had pretended to be holy, but were caught committing terrible sins. In a particular way, EWTN was harmed because several of their biggest stars were exposed. I was thinking about whether something holy can be “tainted,” and what that means. Fulton Sheen made mistakes, but he’s still one of my favorites. William F. Buckley helped found the National Catholic Reporter, and later regretted it (when NCR turned formal heretic) and asked Fulton Sheen on live television to excommunicate them. Dom Joseph Gajard associated with men who went on to embrace heresy, such as Godfrey Diekmann. My conclusion? Even holy people make mistakes.
