Well the meeting has been scheduled for this Wednesday. It happened quicker than I expected. I think I am ready for the face to face. When I started healing I never thought I would be speaking to the institution, the church, responsible for allowing this to happen to me. This part of the healing all began when my mom passed and I was forced to meet the priest at the church where the abuse occurred. This happened 10 months ago to the day of setting up this meeting. Somehow my mom's passing helped to bring the people and me to this stage of healing. I believe she will be there on Wednesday to bring me the peace she would like me to have.

Just an update. I am amazed I am still in contact with the Diocese about my recovery. Last night via email I received renewed words of encouragement from the diocese. They re - extended the offer to meet with Bishop. I believe they have a genuine concern for my healing. It touched me to know even the institution has a heart. I guess they have witnessed many lives lost due to the decades of sexual abuse within the church. One day I may do the formal grievance but not yet ready. The church knows and today and police know. No legal recourse only institution recourse seems not to add any more validation than I have received.

I am grateful they extended their hearts. And today I will be with people who have supported me on healing in a festive environment Super Bowl. It is always nice to have affirmation and acceptance of what I lived and how I struggled - it gives hope.
