Pedophile Priests

Advertisements

Full disclaimer: I am not a practising Catholic, and I am not a devotee of established religion; my views herein are intrinsically biased.

I think as Catholics we are all complicit in the lasting exposure of paedophile priest abusing their power and authority to molest minors.  We’ve all heard the stories and hints in our parishes and have done nothing to investigate the stories of the abused.

I spent my early years in an all-boys Catholic school in Arima, and the rumours were prevalent then as they are now in 2018.

As parents, we have a commitment to defend our children, and the circumstances in the Grand Jury Report are repugnant, immoral and inhumane.

The Catholic Church has a history of human rights violations throughout its antiquity, and I am afraid centuries from now this latest scandal will just be a blemish on the epidermis of the shroud of the Church. Speak up to power and order action, to initiate change in your local parishes.

“You are the shepherds of the Church, if you do not act, evil will go unchecked.”

After starting this blog I have gone through sone major life changes and I had to take a break from writing to assess my thoughts, actions and beliefs. I was recently inspired to write again and will now include everyday issues and challenges that we all face at some point in our lives. I believe it is important to share their thoughts in a constructive manner that may inspire, help and/or motivate others. This will allow for stimulating conversation geared towards making is the best versions of ourselves.

    It saddens me that this continues to happen
