“Impatience with the long-suffering nature of all grief is not uniquely Catholic. The criticism is that survivors, and others who grieve, cling to an isolating distinction too long. Yet, like all people who suffer, we are, after taking all the right steps, still helpless to bestow healing on ourselves. We all need to be saved.”
T. Pitt Green
In this short work about fierce faith, Green has crafted an unflinching and charming memoir to showcase the true dimensions of a scourge within the Roman Catholic Church from which most people still recoil. Doing so, she lays a cornerstone for healing and reconciliation badly needed in order to free Catholics to thrive with single-minded spiritedness in the discipleship to which they have been called. Her work challenges prevailing assumptions about the motives and psychological life sentence imposed on survivors, reminding readers that healing and forgiveness really do exist – on none other than God’s terms. Her message is surprisingly inspiring for all Catholics, and in particular for Catholic priests.
