addressing Statutes of Limitation Reform
Why are we still working as Voice of the Faithful? We are still here in another Advent to remind the Catholics of Philadelphia, and ourselves that children, as vulnerable as the Christ Child was, were harmed by our priests in our parishes.
We remember especially all the children and their families who suffered from sexual abuse by emotionally and morally ill clergy. We are witnesses that the world outside the hierarchy has not forgotten and forgiven the perpetrators and enablers of the abuse.
We know that legislation has not been passed to enable victims of abuse to received just recompense. Citizens are responsible to overcome the power of the insurance companies and the Church lobbyists.
Voice Of the Faithful is also concerned with the structure of the governance of the Church. If there were more lay men
and women in the upper councils of the Church, the transfer of perpetrators from parish to parish would not have happened.
We pray for the Church in Philadelphia and the world, that repentance will lead to forgiveness and then to healing.
Holy Advent to you all,
