Hi, my fraternal brother.
Yes, it's a great shame, and these kind of reports hit me pretty hard personally as i was in a Catholic orphanage/home for 4 years.
It was run by the Xaverian Brothers, however for me I was safe from my sexual agressors, while i was physically in their care. I was between 10-14 years old.
When i had to go "home" during the summer time, i was once again fresh meat for my abusers.
But, at the same time some of them were sexually abusing boys in their care too.
So, for one boy (me) it was a safe & secure enviroment.
And for another one of my fraternal brothers here, it was his HELL.
Real sad, it's no wonder that we sexually abused boys have a hard time believing in God or trusting HIM...At least for me it's still that way.
Heal well my fraternal brothers, heal well.
