Shifting gears

Shifting gears in my priesthood. I have ataxia and it’s getting worse. For those unfamiliar with ataxia it is a degenerative disorder that effects many things most importantly a persons balance. there is no dizziness, just loss of balance. When I fall I also loose all strength so getting back up is difficult.

Focusing on the priest sexual scandal, which has been mishandled in everyway possible way, only frustrates me. Dealing with people who have no intention of coming up with real solutions to this problem is maddening. So I have to evaluate what it is God wants from me to do. Now I’m not only a member of the exclusive sexually abused by clergy club, but now I’m also a member of the marginalized disabled community. Good times!

Although not thrilled with the latest development I’ll have to see where this takes me and where it is that God wants me and what it is that he wants me to do.

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.
