Jewish priests were no worse devil’s brood, than Christian priests.(Mt23-33)
Every priest, essentially haughty sinners, claiming to represent absolute love Heavenly Father are necessarily so. Their self-justified glory seeking God is devil in fact. Heavenly Father is humble like a good parent never seeking worship but that we become responsible like him. Like good parents, He humbly owns the responsibility of the defects of the children.
Previously I worshipped the self-justified Devil like God as general Christians worshipped. But by following Christ to become father to orphans, destitute and poor Muslims I became humble seeing my now exposed sins and failures. Then only I came to know the humble Father. You know one when you become like him, never before.
Of course, a few of the Christian priests have achieved that humility. One such catholic priest brought Hindu me to Christ 53 years ago. He was persecuted by the majority worldly hypocrite fellow priests. Then Christ took over moving me away from them and church to do social work. Only then I grew up spiritually.
But latter my greed pushed me to go back to them lured by the prospect of easy and honorable priesthood. So I gave my Orphanage properties to them for safe keeping and went to seminary. But my outspoken criticism of their hypocrisy earned me expulsion. Meanwhile, they misappropriated my properties by forged deed, which the bishop had previously promised to return if I would fail. Now the Catholic Church is used to so much corruption that it is nothing to them.

But I have vowed to rely on Christ only, precluding appeal to human agency ecclesial or secular. Besides in my Muslim mission run solely by Christ given resources has gained me heaven(Christ’s presence) even here. So I am not eager for worldly things. Pray that I may overcome my loathing of those priests but have pity on them, to be true Christ-follower. I may not forget that I would have been barren like them had not Christ saved me.

Harboring resentment, etc. against people will only wear on your soul, not theirs.

I will say prayers for you...

Great Testimony. The Love than comes from Jesus conquers all.

You may want to try to forgive those in the past who hurt you if you truly want peace in your life and to move forward in your walk with Him..

When we can't forgive we are burdened by constantly reliving the past and it breeds resentment and contempt..These things will keep us from growing the good fruit of "The Vine"
