Public Penance

In the light of the scandals that are rocking the Church, public penance sounds good to me. Public sinners,  those responsible for giving scandal of any kind, even if they were kings or queens, once used to publically show that they were sorry by processing down the street in sackcloth and ashes, or kneeling at the doors of the church throughout Lent. I think every diocese should come up with something and that all Catholics be encouraged to participate, with the bishops leading the way. Everyone can learn to chant the Miserere for starters.
