Molestation, Renewing priestly promises, blind eyes

A day later, (after Wilmington’s Chrism Mass), and I am irked that the priest who molested me and molested six other boys over many years stood every year at the Chrism Mass, possibly participating in the renewal of his priestly promises, as if nothing was wrong.  Maybe he was suffering internal tortures but a fat lot of good that did all of us who were his victims…  Many years, six boys that we know about, over many years.  How could that not be seen as a problem by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia?

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.
