Christ's lack of presence when I was being abused. I feel for these survivors because this too shows them Christ is nowhere near the center of this.
Some of what I'm going to say will sound cryptic because it's also based on our private conversations. You know how much I support you and immensely value our friendship. You also know just how much I support you in this lawsuit of yours.
I know that it's a difficult, more than difficult, thing for you and I know for others as well. But there was no lack of presence of Jesus during yours or anyone's abuse. He was there, suffering with you, helping keep you strong. Don't forget that you survived!!! You're still here!! You're definitely correct that God is not at the center of our abuse. He's just not. The abuse was evil, and that is not God. And crux, the center, of the whole problem is that the abusers closed themselves off to God. And for a priest to do that.... and for others, especially bishops, to cover it up, help cover it up... I've nothing good to say about that.
Here's a big hug my friend!
