The only way I can begin to understand the evil of child abuse is to imagine that I am a parent and how I would feel if my little boy or girl were sexually abused by our parish priest.  The anger within me, however, could only be analogous – meaning that what I would be imaging could never come that close to what a parent would actually feel. I will never know what parents have experienced but I ask God to help me to understand and to be compassionate with those who have been so abused.
