For the Rev. Bruce Jarboe, coming up with a homily for Christmas Mass is both a challenge and an opportunity. He knows that in this time of war and economic anxiety, the holiday might be the only occasion all year that some of his listeners will be visiting a church. As worshippers pack Holy Trinity Church in Glen Burnie for the best-attended services of the year, the 50-year-old priest will have a chance - not to chide long-absent members of his flock, but to encourage them to nurture their spiritual life.

For nearly 20 years, Thomas Roberts kept quiet, hiding the secret of sexual abuse by the high school chaplain he sought counseling from in 1987. When another young man who had attended a different school came forward in 1993 with similar allegations against the priest, Roberts still kept quiet. Yesterday, as a Baltimore County judge prepared to sentence Jerome F. Toohey Jr. for the sexual abuse that occurred over three years, Roberts kept quiet no longer. "Father Jeff lived nearly 20 years in the freedom of my silence," the 33-year-old former Calvert Hall College High School student told the judge.
