Day 1 - Novena for the Abuse Crisis | Accountability, Transparency and Healing

Wednesday, August 29, 2018

Last week in the newspaper a great deal of sexual abuse was done to children by priest
... the bishops and arch bishops and priest did nothing to prevent this and stop it ..One
catholic college took down the some of the buildings names and rename them .. Our bishop sent out a letter and put it on the internet and the catholic paper that he will not
tolerate it and will give it right to the proscuters office and let them do what needs to be done ... I dont know why these people in charge would save a damage priest then to
fix the child .. praying for childrens safety,

Today let's pray for all the victims and survivors of the abuse; for their healing, for their safety and future protection.

Here are the prayers for today:
