Yesterday aBishop here in Bavaria offered his resignation to the Pope for child abuse - 3 weeks earlier he had sworn to his God that he never has touched a child. It makes me vomit

Paula, I know. I am hoping this is the beginning of change and healing. There is a lot to be done. I hope I am not being naive. A lot of people still do not "get it." Hugs for you!

Slowly but surely so many things come out Current pope has "hushed" so mayn thngs over, put it under the carpet. Physical and emotional abuse in more then 20 orphanages led by the catholic church. They used tools which the CIA get told of to aplly on terrorists! No sleep, no food, day/weeks in darkness. I remember that I fled the abuse into a boarding school, a nunnery. The nuns emotional abused me as I was so quiet and shy! Whatever happened it was my fault. I kid seeking shelter left the nunnery more damaged then before. I can relate to you feeling naive. I hope all comes out now and actions will be taken. Yet I do have my doubts. Need my hope for myself currently. You have come far and you opening to me in your last comment truly hs touched my heart. Thanks, Colleen for being you and true. Hugs
