The Secretary of the Curia from Washington & the Assistance Coordinator from Pittsburg replied. Washington’s reply was arrogant, it my opinion. (But they did reply and for that I’m grateful.) It could be because I’m a tad touchy on the subject of clergy sexual abuse. Pittsburg’s reply was a little better. I need to pray about it before I respond. Both places are under the same delusion that they are doing as much as they can. They are wrong of course and need to step out of their usual actions and responses. I am the exception, although not the only one, who has not turned away from the Church or God. That is why different steps and responses are needed. “In fire gold is tested…” they may think that changing up their approach to victims is too hard, is like being in the fire. However it is not a fire of destruction but a purifying fire.
I’m encouraged that two of the nine or so diocese I contacted responded. No word from any of the Knights of Columbus State Deputies that I contacted. God’s time, I must remind myself.
