My fraternal brothers.

Previously i had this exact post in the alumni fourm.
However i thought that this just might be some help to those whom have great difficulty in forgiving.

Well, today at Mass, and being it is the feast of the Holy Family, little Pete & big Pete, after considerable soul searching, on this day, and in God's house & in HIS presence Said the following...........
My Heavenally Father & Mother, from the depths of little Pete & big Pete's soul we hereby, in YOUR presence, FORGIVE our "mom", for the sexual, physical, emotional & mental abuse comitted against us.

To, Ralph, the "mom" & "dad", that little Pete had loved for over 55 years, as we thought that he loved us too, little Pete & big Pete FORGAVE him too, for the sexual, emotional & mental abuse against us. In God's house & presence.

We also, FORGAVE those strangers, who worked for the Boston subway system, whom little Pete had thought they loved us too & went with them. For their sexual, emotional & mental abuse against us. In God's house & presence.

Little Pete & big Pete had tears streaking down both cheeks,in God's house & in HIS presence.

Rusty tears, that were buried in our very soul for 55 years.

As each day passes little Pete is growing up to become a man, step by step, ever so slowly..In God's presence.

" I will take that lost boys hand, and i will lead him from the depths of darkness, into the sunlight, forever into eternity."

Heal well my fraternal brothers, heal well.

Little Pete & big Pete.

Peter

first off may I just say this is a very powerful post IMHO.

Thank you for sharing my friend.

Secondly I get inspiration from a post like, I do want to forgive and move on with my life, heal and grow as you say.

Thank you Pete for sharing and I'm so happy you were able to forgive.

Charlie.

P.S. There is hope for others.

My fraternal brother,

First, Welcome to MS. Here you will receive compassion, understanding & love, from your brothers (fraternal) & friends (in pain).

We all have been there, albeit in different ways & ages.

We have been into the depths of our soul & hell too.

Here, we do not judge. We will listen to your heart, your soul & your tears.

My fraternal brother Obi, you are in the right place, at the right time & with the right people.

Be prepaired for the emotional roller coaster ride of your life. You are on your way.

Your poem is right on. Right from your heart. A true brother indeed.

Heal well my fraternal brother Obi, heal well.

Little Pete & big Pete..but 1 (Irishmoose).
