"I am writing in appreciation for the article in the 'Anglican Journal' about the Rev. Matthew Martin's struggles with alcohol, 'Clergy should show their wounds, says priest who opened up about past alcoholism' (Oct. 2018, p. 1). As we priests show our vulnerability, so we will help give others the courage to show theirs. None of us is perfect. Jesus came for the imperfect. He also suffered himself, allowing himself to be vulnerable, so that we may know that he is with us in our vulnerability. I write as one who struggles with addiction. My father suffered from alcoholism to cover his pain. I take part in Al-Anon meetings, which are of great benefit to me".
