After many, many years, there has not been one ‘Catholic priest’ with the courage to speak out about the abuse of our ‘little people’ by members of the ‘Catholic clergy’. It is an extremely sad situation.
However, it has been so for centuries. ‘The silence procedure’ is part of the hierarchy’s manner of dealing with serious problems over the centuries.
It is now time to lift the veil and come to grips with the ‘sad situation’ that has come about as a result of ‘silence’ and negligence on the part of our ‘Catholic clergy’.
