Thank you, NT for this.
i found it very moving and could agree with nearly all of it.
and i'm not catholic.
but of course, the proof of the pudding...
just hoping that it actually trickles down to practical action - on behalf of the victims - and to hold the perpetrators accountable - not just to forgive and absolve them.
They have greatly oppressed me from my youth, but they have not gained the victory over me.
Plowmen have plowed my back and made their furrows long.
But the Lord is righteous; he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.
