Money alone won’t buy healing

The Wilmington Diocese settled with the people suing because they experienced sexual abuse by priests.  I think that most people think that it is over.  It is not over.  All the money in the world or all the kings horses and all the kings men can’t do it.  The victims need psychic, spiritual, emotional, sexual healing.  Who knows if they will ever trust the Church her clergy or anyone again?  I certainly don’t.  Phrases become clichés when they are true and used over and over again.  “Money can’t buy happiness.”   Money alone won’t buy healing.

I am a Roman Catholic priest ordained for the Diocese of Wilmington, DE who is also a victim of clergy sexual abuse. I am often angered by the insensitiviy and hostility of other clergy, the hierarchy and the so-called people-of-God. If clergy, bishops included, really and truly understood abuse, (any kind of abuse), I would not feel the need to blog on occasion. It is very frustraing.
