A Heartbreaking Novel About Mothers, Daughters and Secrets

"Elizabeth egan joins us now to talk about her latest. Pick for group taxed. Hey liz hi pam i thanks for having me. What's the book. The book is called. I couldn't love you more. And it's by esther freud. This is her ninth novel. And it's a book about three generations of women kind of circulating between ireland and england and the first one is a woman named ika. We get to know her in the nineteen thirties than her daughter. Roseline in the nineteen fifties and then a woman who we find out. And i'm not giving anything away that you won't learn fairly early in the book is kate who and we meet her in. Nineteen ninety-one and roseline is the linchpin of the whole story. She becomes pregnant in her early twenties and winds up in a home in ireland outside of cork a mother and baby home. Run by nuns. Who force her to give up her daughter kate for adoption and so the book is the story of these three women. And how e phi is continuing to look for roseline who disappears and kate is looking for roseline. She's looking for birth mother. And it's this incredibly powerful story about mothers and daughters and also an interesting and really heartbreaking. Look at what was happening in ireland at the time that really went on for about one hundred years where the catholic church ran the. They were like prisons for women who were in trouble in some in some way and they forced women to change their names and to give up their babies. And it's an incredibly heartbreaking walk at that legacy of secrecy.

You and I are being told we are not. We were being Told that we some some places are trying to force vaccinations simply trying to force Masculine mandates and illegals come up, and they're coughing and hacking openly in a water burger. Catholic charities is surreptitiously. Having them hidden. Dozens and dozens of covid positive families and people. At hotels all around. Hidalgo County. And loyal Texas where this is going on. Thank the The city of the United City manager. But the The judge. The county judge of Hidalgo County, who is a Democrat, came out today and said We can't do this anymore. We cannot do this anymore. And this story of Water burger with illegals. With covid coughing and hacking openly with no mask. No nothing into it and what a burger tries to ask him to leave. They won't leave the people wave a police officer over and that's what led to this. Press conference today. And I'm not here to attack the Catholic Church. But I'm here to tell you the Catholic charities is taking the money that you may give them. And is taking in covid positive illegals and allowing them to go wherever they want and spread it all over the country. We have an unbelievable Story that also came out. Today and and and other pieces of them. One of them is that Folks with the Air Force. At Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. Took an email and shared it with Fox News, which made it become a national story. Thank goodness. That folks in the air Force in Laughlin Air Force Base are being told to not say anything, not take any pictures. Not tell anybody, um, and that they are flying illegals all over the country and dumping them in Conservative states Republican Red states in Georgia in Tennessee. In Texas. And they are dumping them in the cities and the the counties and the states have no saying that they have no knowledge of it. Our state is under an amazing attack. An invasion. How dare anybody! Try to say that you or I should be forced to do anything about coronavirus or be in trouble for anything. When the illegals are being flown, bust, driven in, hidden and and housed and spread everywhere in this country, and we know it is not anything like what they say. The majority of them now are single men there from 150 some odd countries. Now I think it is from Cuba from African countries from Haiti. From so many countries from Brazil. So many places we don't know who they are. And by the way to say that we've already had Over a million illegals so far that have been caught. That doesn't include the hundreds of thousands or more of others who have gotten through and whether or not there Members of the Zetas. One of the Zetas jumped off the train and was stopped by a police officer in one of the rural towns and they actually caught them. I think they even got in the shootout or something with him. These are people who behead who rape Who bring drugs. And it's all happening with impunity. I every day. I don't This is so Wrong and so Overwhelming and so Magnanimous. I don't even know how to describe it other than you and I listen to this and see this every day in Go. How can this be? And how can we stop this? And this is so wrong. You know, One of things has been talked about. And one of the questions I have for you is how do you Propose. We We try to stop this. What do you think they're going to take to stop this? The force. Biden actually enforce our laws and and somebody mentioned impeachment. Not tonight, but somebody has mentioned impeachment before, and he literally is. Uh, Going against his constitutionally sworn duties to protect our country. He is knowingly and willingly, allowing. Over a million illegals to invade us spreading covid everywhere. And it's a great point to make that not one Republican. That I'm aware of. Has has done anything to try to pass some kind of a bill. Or do something. Just to try to stop this other than complaining. We'll get two million illegals this year alone. They were complaining to an attacking, uh, CBS. 11 was saying, Oh, the governor of Iowa came under criticism for Uh, saying that she'll she expects it to be about 200 grand for the troopers that she's providing us. Well, hold on a second. To say that it's not worth 200 grand from Iowa, for example. Is to say, I mean all going to say one name Mollie Tibbetts. Remember who Mollie Tibbetts is? That's the woman who was jogging was raped and murdered by an illegal alien. So and and and the governor said. We have issues in Iowa. From this. We have an increase in illegal drug activities, including fentanyl. Signals were killed. George Floyd, for example. So it's just unbelievable. And I hope that this is this is what What's what ends up stopping this, But I don't think it's going to I think the Democrats are going to do whatever they can and let it happen over and over and over and over and over and over again until some some actual Democrats and not a Hidalgo County judge who God bless him for what he did in that press conference. Today. And God bless the sergeant from that lawyer Police department who came out and said the issues that you know, said what he said earlier that I played the audio from the last segment. But they're going to you're going to need congressional Republicans. You need congressional Democrats and Senate Senate Democrats is to stand up and to say this is not okay. This must be stopped. The Democrat. Judge of Hidalgo County says We've been doing well as a community and slowing the spread of this deadly virus. You can see policies by both the federal and state government are beginning to have serious consequences for Hidalgo County. I call on federal immigration officials to stop releasing infected migrants in your community and further calling for governor Abbott to return. Hidalgo County. The safety tools he took away that would help us slow the spread of this disease. This is unacceptable. I don't know what what? What Abbott did. But I do hear today that Abbott is signed.

Reconciliation commission called for the pope to come to canada to personally apologize to the survivors and their families for the abuses indigenous children faced in the residential school system.

"I mean, you talk to any other people on there. I mean, it was Brett Baer, who was interviewing Jim Jordan. It got him to admit that he actually took a call from Trump that day. He was that Jordan on January six, was talking to Trump. So, um, we go to Perry in Pasadena High. Perry. You're on KGO appreciate the calm. Hey, Thanks for taking my call. Can you hear me? Ok? Yeah. You sound great, man. Go ahead called Great. You know what I did to statistics? Uh, 332 Million people are living in this country right now. And let's say 78 million of them voted for Trump. More like 70 more like 70. Seven year, Okay, but okay, so that leaves us 254 million people War coherent. And I think we're giving too much talk to these people who are lost. It kind of reminds you like the people. You heard stories where somebody's loved one will pass away, but they don't want to believe it. And they keep them in the house forever. You know, that's how these people are. Well, here's Barry. I agree with you 1000%. But there is a caveat. The caveat is, is these people that we're talking about our changing voter laws in states and they're suppressing people's right to vote at every at every opportunity, whether it's Florida, Georgia or Texas. They're making, making it difficult now. It may backfire on them because many of the people that support Republicans are older and have a hard time getting the polls as two older African Americans. They just don't want they know it's a losing proposition. If minorities and poor people vote. So they're trying to make it as hard as possible for that to happen. It's disgusting. It's not who we are. And it goes against the Constitution of the Founding fathers idea, although that's not entirely true, because they wouldn't let women vote or poor people than either. We do have an interesting history. That's a good call, though it's and it's it is encouraging math. Although of the 70 million voted, they're adults and so of the remaining 250 some million what the third of those are probably Children. Maybe so, you know. Yeah. The numbers are on our side. I guess. Let's go to Napa. Talk to Jim. Jim. You're on KGO Appreciate God. Yep. Oh, good. He that was well, but I assume he wanted to know who shot Ashley Babbit. He said he was present on 16 21. Jim Callback, man. I would love to debate you on that. Um, actually bad but was shot because she was part of a group that was trying to break down the doors and down the hall from that was the vice president of the United States. Um and they were screaming. They were smashing and they were screaming. You know, we're going to hang Mike Pence. Go back and listen to that scene right before. Actually, Babbitt was shot. It's a horrible tragedy that she was shot. That she was conned. By Fox News and by Donald Trump and others to put her in that situation, right. That's That's unconscionable. That that again the lies caused her to do that. You know everybody's got free will I I get that right, but I look at like religion. Okay, um, you get to a point in certain religions, Not all I grew up in the Catholic Church when I was a kid. Great religion for me, you know, basically don't do this do that. We didn't read the Bible. We weren't forced into some sort of fantasy world. I mean, you know, I mean, we were told to believe in God and Jesus and son of God. And all that, right? I mean, but it wasn't this idea. We didn't talk a lot about hell. We didn't talk about Um you know how we were just evil people. If we did things like masturbate you No, you listen to the You listen to some of the evangelicals today on some of these shows, it's frightening to sell the ones that supported Trump. It's Calvinism. It's the idea that if you were born porn if you were born, born poor and a person of color Under Calvinism. That was your destiny. You cannot rise above that. That's what God wanted you to be. You have to stay there. There are people who preach that crap. So it's hard for people to break out of religion, just like it's hard for people to break out of these. You know these these cultural prisons that they living in these places like Arkansas or Louisiana? I mean, that's what their whole life that surrounds them is the people that the That spout this stuff that you hear coming out of Tucker Carlson's mouth or Donald Trump and these others. They're fundamentally tearing apart our country. Stitch by stitch, and it's us to us to. It's up to us to stop it. And the best way to stop it the most efficient ways to get out and vote these sons of out of office. And and and take their power away.

"I don't even know how many people actually know about all the other rides going on in the midwest before the White House that and it never got publicized but we're going to talk a lot about that kind of stuff. But all of these things that have happened it happened to everybody not just, you know, Joe civilian. Everybody's going through it meaning, Christians are going through it too. And I know a lot of people I've heard more than ever Christians are hypocrites or Christians often aren't doing what they're supposed to be doing it. They don't act the way they're supposed to act and you know, let's be fair. Okay Christians aren't here just to put up a front bumper anybody. I mean we are still human beings and that's one Life In The Son also was started because we do deal with real life issues. And you know, sometimes they don't handle things away. we should that's true but nobody does not making excuses. I'm just saying we still have the human side of this to battle with and that's why life in the sun this podcast started so we could talk about how Christians deal with the day-to-day rigors of normal life. Our life doesn't change to something much more pleasant and much he's dead. Here because we became Christians. It's typically harder. I tell you what before we get started in the main part of the show. I wanted to tell you what I thought when I first got saved and started reading the Bible for myself. I was twenty nine years old and you know, I knew some things about God mainly cuz I grew up in the Catholic church, but all I heard was God's love and God's grace and mercy, he knows everything. He's everywhere, you know that sort of stuff. But as far as reading the Bible I was doing this for the first time and I started out I was going to read all the way through from Genesis to Revelations and I started finding things that were humorous to me in the Bible and one of those things was Adam and Eve's fall in the garden that go and hide themselves like because I hear God coming and garden. And it really tickled me to no end when God comes to the garden and he says Adam, where are you? Does anybody else find that funny wage wage? All right. I hope you found a little bit of the humor in that like I did anyway, but then again, you know, I was a newborn Christian when I first read it, so it was funny to me back then and I do realize that there was a reason for God just asking a time where it was. So I hope you found the humor in it off because I didn't but anyway what I want to talk about today is what a lot of people for some reason, you know, you hear this all the time. We don't mix religion with politics here. Well good. I'm glad because I don't like either one. And I'm going to take the same position as John Wayne here. Okay, politicians and diapers have a lot in common. They're both full of it and they both need to be changed often for the same reason, but let's let's be sincere about something. Okay. A lot of people in this country have no idea really what politics is all about. A lot of people have no idea what the difference between Christianity and religion is And a lot of people my age couldn't even recite the Preamble of the Constitution to you much less tell you what it means. And therefore they do what the Constitution means they don't know what it says. They listen to what people tell them and you know, I'm just going to be blunt here. Okay. America we need to get our heads out of the sand. Okay. It's the politicians that we vote for our supposed to be representing the constituents. And when we elect somebody we're supposed to be electing people that we trust that will represent our best interests. And I mean that's just the basics of it really and and don't think that it only took fifty six men about two hours to write all this stuff. It took a long time. It took a lot of studying it took going through the things that they went through all the way up to the tyranny of England. And you know, I've heard it said so many times recently. It drives me insane that the constitution was not written. Was it not based on the Bible? Okay. Well, I think I could probably agree that they didn't sit there with the Bible and just go through the book of numbers and Deuteronomy and Leviticus and Kolb the laws out of the Old Testament. I don't think they did that. But if you look at the people who

Discussing the Good and Bad of Christianity: Dillon Bruce of the Bible Conversations Podcast

"Rain. What what kind of. What branch of christianity. Were you when you were growing up with because i know i grew up catholic and since kind of distanced self a little. Bit what about you. So growing up A lot of fame or at least a legitimate. Because i know our methods but i grew up in an am african american Ah piscopo i think ame And it was not as lively as baptist church but not as rigid as a catholic church Very somewhere in the middle But i one thing they want to mention was that so much. So that people who hear the good can come forth into the good but those who hear how you're able to be transparent and to give and receive the feedback in the same light as the good while going through. The transgressions will even more people so not only is. This good is good in every light. You can find good in anything so this is good. Mary do appreciate it once again. Well and before we jump into the bad. I just wanted to point out for anyone who is listening to the audio. I know we're still on spotify on anchor in everything. If you're listening to the audio check out our youtube channel look at the video. Because i know this is a shameless plug. And so yeah once. You're on youtube. Channel smash buttons hit them all that stuff but honestly watch. The video watched dillon's face when he's describing. The good of christianity watched that as opposed to just listening to it. Because you know there's something to be said about just just watching you explain this. you know. it's clear that that good that quote unquote good. Is that good to you right. That it means that much to you that i think the audio only doesn't really do it justice so yeah definitely check that out Check out the video component. So that you can see the actual. I don't know the the visual component of describing this good but anyway yeah. I think that you know we. We've touched on a lot of the good Dylan i wanted to before we kick it over to some of the more quote unquote bad or controversial stuff. I wanted to give you one last chance to say what needs saying any more any other good aspects that you want to bring up before we jump over I think that we've left out. That's important very you being very nice dylan because you can have a whole podcast on all right. Yeah and that's the thing is when you ask me the good and i was like The body will. How am i going to summer as so. That's why i just chose with very big statement that gives purpose to life and so two to add onto that as well before we talk about the bad One of the main things that i like to share with folks is those who don't have any connections to christianity like y'all mentioned he grew up Ame and catholic and y'all have a a understanding of scripture which is awesome. But it's the folks that i really like sharing with the that. Don't know much about jesus us that don't know much about the bible at all and that's when i can can tell them. Hey i i can share something with you. That gives your purpose. I can share something with you to show you that the you don't have have to have a broken life that god didn't make you broken that I was formed as a jar of clay. Just as you were and that even though we may be different circumstances in life. That god doesn't make any jars of clay that are broken and that you can still do the purpose. The the jar was was made for to hold water. You know you can still glorify god. You can still worship god just as i can. And that's our purpose. We don't need to do anything more. We don't need to have the biggest house we don't need to have the This or that or anything we have one goal is to glorify got and when we are able to hold out water like the job when we're able to glorify god then that's when we get to look forward to return ity that's when we get to look forward to heaven with god. Which is i guess. Probably the best of all the good things about christianity. What we appreciate you use. I mean obviously like like you said it's impossible to fit in all of the good of anything in in that short of period and like like we said we plan to do this with different religions but also cycle back through and get back to christianity or different Sects of hannity or things like that and so hopefully as time goes by and we do some more of these segments will be able to flesh out a little better the good surrounding all these religions right in and have as we get some different people coming on get some different perspectives. On what what. Different people value most about the religion. And what what they think is. They're they're good right there. Good aspects. i think that'd be really cool too because when you even look at the look inside christianity. then there's even a whole nother conversation you can have right. Yeah so with that. I think we can jump into some of the more quote unquote bad or controversial aspects of christianity. Right to the other reason that people don't like talking about religion is the more negative aspects of it right. People will talk about things like the crusades. People will talk about things like the kkk. We'll talk about things like you know catholic priests molestation accusations and things like that and so there's all these things that when you now say oh yeah. I'm a catholic. Or oh yeah. I'm a christian. Now be be observer or listeners saying oh well what about these things. These things i know about that. Oh that that frames christianity in a bad light or frames catholicism in a bad light or whatever the religion is everyone has the So yeah i mean brandon kick it over to you. I know that you had some some You wanted to talk more about the connections to the kkk. And i think that would be a great place to start. But i don't want to it from you. You can frame it jump into whatever aspect you wanted to. There's so much that we could talk about with the bad to like you know we gotta pick and choose a little

That's why i still get my yearly boost for my kuti shots who i mean if a girl ever touches me i'm all set but it is funny that putin has to clarify that. He's not joking when he wishes biden.

LGBTQ Catholics stung by Vatican rebuff of same-sex unions

"Catholic churches around the world are getting some new clarification about how they're supposed to handle lgbtq members of their faith. The vatican officially told churches they could welcome and endorse gay people but not their relationships as for its reasoning. The vatican says gay people must be treated with dignity and respect but the position is still that marriage is really intended to create new life and since same sex. Couples can't biologically make babies. Their unions should not be recognized. Says the new statement was likely in response to a german church. That's been reaching out to gay catholics recently. At this point it's not clear how churches will respond some. Lgbtq advocates are calling about a new document hate speech that can turn into discrimination around the world. others predicts churches will likely just ignore the vatican's position to be

"When archbishop gomez released documents he also relieved cardinal mahony of all administrative or public duties. The next day the arch bishop clarified. That mahoney remained in archbishop emeritus in good standing with no restrictions on ministry. Mahoney defended himself on his personal blog. He said nothing in his background or education prepared him to deal with clergy abuse. He admitted mistakes. He'd made and said he had apologized for them. He also wanted recognition for the policy. Set up to prevent clergy abuse during his tenure by the mid nineties. Mahony has set up a sexual abuse advisory board made up of lay people and experts in two thousand two. He implemented zero tolerance policy in two thousand and four. He issued the report to the people of god which included a disclosure of failings in an apology for the way cases were handled in the past in a statement. Given to us for this podcast. The archdiocese of los angeles spoke strongly in defense of cardinal. Mahony's record as a leader for reform. It reads in part quote cardinal. Mahony committed himself and all who serve in the archdiocese to addressing those failings to ensure the protection of minors prevention of abuse and continued support for victims survivors. He has personally met with approximately one hundred victim survivors and continues these meetings to personally apologize and accept accountability unquote. The archdiocese also pointed out that multiple grand jury investigations mahoney never faced any criminal charges for his actions. The full statement is available in the show notes while mahoney made important strides toward addressing the sexual abuse of minors throughout his ministry. He also made serious errors along the way his attempts to address the sexual abuse of minors privately with minimal involvement of the civil authorities. Not only allowed abuser priests to victimize more children. It also prevented many victims of sexual abuse from getting justice and a court of law when bishop has failed in a serious matter after. He has apologized after he has made restitution he can changed what policies he can change. After all of this should he remain a place of prominence in the church community or.

"Teaching clergy and Laity at the parish Diaz in levels, how to work together effectively as co-responsible partners church is the work of Dance Lucci. My name is Dan Solution I have the privileged serving as the CEO of Catholic Leadership Institute, which isn't a national Haslett that's based in the.

Catholic businessman Tim Flanagan founded the Catholic Leadership Institute in Nineteen. Ninety one he recognized that while leadership training was offered and businesses, it wasn't offered in the church. So he changed that and Saloojee was one of the first young adults to benefit from the training. Now, he's the CEO for about ten years. All we did was provide leadership training to priests. In all the different basics. So how to do a strategic plan how to recruit volunteers? How To? Do Messaging and communications effectively in a parish setting. How to sustain their own motivation time management, all those key leadership behaviors. Salute. told me that one. To lady fully embracing their shared responsibility is the idea that the church exists primarily to give them something I. Think the the consumer mindset is one that I think we've kind of fed into as a church overall. I am saying clergy as well in the sense that. I come to the parish or I come to church to receive things. So you you give me my Sacramento, you give me a good music you give me good preaching. You give me this and that's what I deserve and I think to a point at there's there's truth in that right? I mean we are we are. Coming to church for the sacraments we are. We do WanNa hear effective reaching like that. Those aren't unrealistic expectations I. Think the problem is when we get too far afield in in the expectations or the entitlement mindset as if you were going to A. Concert or something like that. Then I think we lose again I.

"Most cases of clerical sex abuse that come to light today are historical cases that can't be tried in criminal, court Either because they accused used his deceased or the statute of limitations has expired. Victims may still be able to sue in civil court. If you heard about a diocese going bankrupt. It's likely because of financial settlements from lawsuits over clergy exodus, the police can decline prosecution for a lot of reasons and we did have one case where priests was accused and they investigated and the chief of police actually sent us a letter saying not only are we declining prosecution I'm here to tell you that the allegation is false. There's no merit to at our investigation showed that. They could also declined prosecution because they they have reason to believe that it's it's true but they don't have sufficient evidence to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt reluctant witnesses, witnesses who have died evidence that was seized in miserably and won't be allowed in court. You know there could be a number of different reasons regardless of whether the DA decides to prosecute the accused priests in our hypothetical case. Father Smith may still face prosecution under the Church's law known as Canon. Law. Just, like the US legal system has lawyers who interpret and apply the law, the Catholic Church has canonise for. Canon Law. My name is Susan Muharan and I am the chancellor for Canonical Affairs for the Archdiocese Saint Paul Minneapolis Muharan got her degree in Canon Law from the Catholic University of America I ask Susan, what is the role of can on the Catholic Church Our church is a community of people and every community needs good order and cannot provides good order for our church in for communities. If. You think about our our churches universal it's through the entire world. So The code of Canon Law, applies to the church in Minnesota as it does in Peru as it does in Japan or Poland is the same law throughout the entire world? At the outset of the canonical investigation of our John Doe case the Bishop Calls Father Smith. In tells him about the allegation and listens to his reaction before he leaves I, do sit down with him and I have a Summary of what his rights are I A- would present him with a copy of the decree opening the investigation, and also with the decree we we call it a precept because it directs him to do certain things during the course of the investigation.

"This is a point worth emphasizing. zero-tolerance reform that was not just unusual and the Church for the time but twenty years later, the US is the only country where the Church has an explicit zero tolerance policy. There is one simple starting point to prevent child abuse in an institutional context background checks. The Dallas Charter mandates background checks for anyone who has regular contact with minors through the church. So that means all clergy teachers staff at Schools Youth Ministers, even just occasional volunteers in any setting where there are kids. In two thousand nineteen compliance with the background check process was ninety eight point seven percent for priests in addition more than two million background checks for gun volunteers that year alone. Not, all diocese do background checks in the same way. This is how the archdiocese of Washington does them. Every individual that has contact with children needs to get A. FBI background check, which is a fingerprinting courtney chase. It allows for an ongoing check of individuals which means that if somebody Does something which I know most people don't but if somebody does have an infraction or a problem with the law if they're arrested or processed. Our office gets an alert notifying us that person has been arrested anybody who has had who's been charged with any sort of child maltreatment. Is disqualified from one or volunteering with children. We have zero tolerance and it is something that we want to make sure we follow. So the community fields that anybody who has contacted children through the archdiocese whether it be school or parish or a church WHO's working there will be safe and has been cleared Eileen dumbo associate professor and Assistant Dean Social Work at Catholic. University notes that the church is far ahead of many other institutions when it comes to addressing sex abuse among their employees sexual abuse is not just a Catholic Church problem. Sexual abuse is a societal problem and we have to intervene on all levels in society. So we have government. Federal Government state government, local government services that don't require background checks or don't require screenings. They're not policies like the someplace for reporting and things like that. So a lot of our other institutions have a long way to go. In in being trauma informed and responding and taking responsibility as system for ignoring denying or covering up abuse. For, example, the Catholic Church started requiring background checks on all volunteers in two thousand and two. The boy scouts also began background checks the next year.

"I was honestly surprised when I heard traces answer about justice I thought that every victim survivor sought justice and healing. Actually isn't that what we all want survivors have proven to be somewhat controversial. Because I think people really want to see this crisis is behind us as something in the past Robert or see professor at Northwestern University. Remember that as part of his research or see has been meeting with survivors of clergy abuse for the last fifteen years. One of the first things I had to learn I. This was very striking because it was like my first encounter with survivors I went to a one of these Monday night meetings of survivors. In Chicago. And I mistakenly used the word healing and I had no idea really at the time I no idea that there was a I didn't know the complexity of the nomenclature. So. I just casually said something about healing. and. Boy Did I jumped on. They really didn't like it. They referred to it as the age and I think the reason they don't. They don't want that or they are resistant to the word healing. especially as it's re used by others I mean they might be willing to say about themselves. I am I am more healed now but I think they are reluctant to have other. Say You have been healed Because healing implies some kind of closure and I don't think they are not ready for closure in their particularly, not ready for the church to have closure. When he spoke, I remember thinking of how memorials of tragedies or disasters often urge us to never forget. They want others to recognize that they have seen. Aspects of the Catholic Church Aspects of Catholic Authority Catholic power of clerical power. They have been the victims of that and they don't want that to go. They want to be witnesses to that. By. Being ever present witnesses to the evil of clergy abuse. They go against our inclination to move on to quickly. So they are the unhealed in that sense they live in the church as the unhealed and as such they are ope size if they are an open wound in the church and.

"My name is to hit green and I- Ami. Survivor of clergy abuse by multiple priests when I was young through when I was a teen today Theresa runs an organization that reaches out to survivors of sexual abuse spirit fires. The name of our organization were also known as the healing voices, which is a magazine that's online that's kind of online mediated magazine where all people can come together and talk about their experience of hurt in the church. Traces own experience with sexual abuse began in Pennsylvania where she grew up the setting for my abuse was. An a small town I was the youngest of. A number of women daughters who were old enough that they left the town before all of this began her they were almost in college or something that they were very much removed. I'm old enough that my parents were part of the war two generation. In my father fought in Burma never talked about it but it was one of the worst. Theaters of the war. My mother. Trusted her faith as much as she could to get through those years, my parents, their parents were part of a generation that were the immigrants to United States from from Ireland. The church was foundational surviving such people. And my I often say my dad were talking about having defeated evil but. On a global scale and they didn't expected to show up in our home in they sure didn't expect to show it up with priests. So, what would happen as good Irish Catholic stay entertained priests at night. My father settled us in a town where he took a treacherous ride to and from work. So that, we could go to Catholic school. And then my mother devoted she was to the church became the the. RECTORY secretary. So I would go from school to the rectory. And then home and there were priests everywhere. The abuse started when Theresa was six or seven years old. And unfortunately, my town was the place where they sent all of the priests were the abusers to be close enough to watch. and. Those priests cycled through my home. And when they I unfortunately was the age group of the different interests of the different abusers. In where I wasn't where there were two abusers who abused boys. they were physically abusive to me because I saw. So that I was all of that was terrible and what I would tell people is you know Abuses hell and I don't know how I got through it. And I I I got through probably in part because of my dog. But one of the reasons I didn't tell my parents, the people of our time believing understanding is. When you once you're abused. You believe the abuser because he's the priest tells you. You're so terrible that my thought was if I could just hide it from my family, they would still love me. So, it's really important. Understand that. You get you get inculcated really fast and people often interpret that as well. You kept going back for sexual interaction but snow, you kept going back every time to be destroyed because you thought there was nothing left. In it's really important for people to understand to look at those events as sexual. And not as really violence as they were is to really be looking at abuse with an ignorance of what the victim goes through. No. So. For you know from six or seven through eighteen that was my life and my fate. You. Then one one of the abusers tracked me down in college and scared me and. Eventually you end up hanging out with people who are really mean and scary to keep that guy away but then. Life starts off on the wrong foot and it takes a lot of years to come back from that. Her first attempts to report. Didn't go well I made my attempt to report. There were eight abusers in my past. I admire attempt to report in the nineties early nineties with not a lot of success although. Now. I'm older I'm almost old and I can look back and see tried they just found. They didn't know how I asked. Theresa what it was like for her to live through the sex abuse scandal of two thousand two. So when when the stuff came out, of Boston, I was kind of jaded prior to that time when I was watching lawsuits start to build another areas. That's what really woke me up that I wasn't the only person who had been abused I really thought it was just me when I was first when I escaped the hell hole of that time I really thought I had brought it on myself and that was mean it took probably ten years to really believe that there were others that was only through lawsuits that were in the press. But by the time, it got into Boston and the whole spotlight series came out in that that. Really two thousand. And One and two thousand to hit. It was kind of like I'm glad everybody's catching up but I'm already deep into therapy deep twelve steps suffering terribly from the effects of abuse. And I just kind of watched in shock. Having gone through it, I couldn't imagine that this would be so widespread. That such depravity could riddle our world but. You know. I just thought. Wow. I'm glad people will finally get it. And they didn't. And Bishops didn't and and. I pulled with that even psychologist. Theresa may have been disillusioned with Church leadership. But she describes her faith journey as one that cut leading her back to the Catholic Church. I just was a high functioning. High, driven smart a fair. person who was in and out of Catholic. Churches and was a Buddhist was an episcopal and tried every other faith. And kept sneaking back to adoration for the risks I knew that was the truth. Adoration is the worship Jesus Christ in the Eucharist outside of mass many parishes have adoration chapels where the faithful often go to pray in silence before the blessed sacrament. In the beauty of the Eucharist and the word was God. Is it in a world where you see nothing but lies. there's one word that doesn't lie in. That's the one I kept going home to. It may have been home but Theresa always feel welcomed by the Catholic community. The lay people to really reflect on this that you know you weren't really great to us back then either. I mean I I remember crawling in. To adoration, which was always safest because you could look around and you knew when people are coming at you and you didn't have to really look at a priest on the on the altar. And I would be there just close to suicide at certain points in. You'd hear over your back to people talking about those survivors and how are those victims and how they're after money. No I never sued the church. But. I I sat there and had to hear it. And.

"People find our show. The first step to ending abuse in the church is to not be silent about it. So please consider sharing this podcast with your friends, family co workers or prisoners again thank you so much for listening. This episode contains a description of sexual abuse listener discretion is advised. In Nineteen ninety-two, nearly five hundred survivors clergy sex abuse gathered in Chicago from around the world. Following decades of sexual abuse by priests, it was the first gathering of its kind. The name of the historic conference was breaking the silence. The silencing of Catholic sex abuse victims has come up often in my interviews for this podcast. It's yet another stain on the Church's handling the sex abuse crisis. And it's no surprise that breaking the silence was the chosen theme of the first large-scale gathering of survivors. Silencing took place in many different ways. If they were very young children, you could see how the silencing by take place in the context of families or communities.

Saying that they went to speak to a teaching sister in their school and the sister told to be quiet not to talk like that about father. Or they tried to tell other priests and other priests just said, no be quiet. In parents, relatives there was a real resistance to hearing these stories and sometimes they silence themselves because they knew that they weren't GonNa get anywhere where they were afraid to speak. I heard for many that they did not even have the language. They didn't know what had happened to them. They didn't know what language to give to this what to call it. Many men felt that I've spoken to felt uncomfortable talking about. Homosexual.

"Here's why the question of homosexual priests is such a thorny problem. Male on male abuse may be committed by men who wouldn't identify as homosexual. In the suggests that a man who identifies homosexual is no more likely to abuse children than a man who does not. So, why does the theory persist? One reason can be found in high profile cases of homosexual abuse like that of Theodore mckarrick McCarrick preyed on young men and boys including a number of adults. Americans. Another reason is that there is a lot of data anecdotal and otherwise showing influx of homosexual men into the priesthood during the same decades in which abuse was most rampant among Catholic clergy. Estimates of the number of Catholic priests identify homosexual vary widely. But there is a widespread agreement that the proportion of homosexual men in the Catholic priesthood is much higher than in the male population at large. And then there are those who seek to normalize homosexuality among clergy to advance their cause, they make a clear connection between the abuse crisis in homosexual priests. The New York Times ran a piece entitled. It is not a closet it is a cage gay Catholic priest speak-out. The author wrote that there are many homosexual priests that this has in some way contributed the current crisis and that the solution is to allow homosexual priests live their lives quote freely openly and honestly. But Margaret Smith are used that the homosexual nature of the abuse has more to do with access than sexual orientation. So who was serving in church? Who was the priest around? There weren't s- alter girls in nineteen seventy Smith calls this opportunity risk in the nineteen sixties and Seventies. Parents didn't even think about clergy sex abuse. So they allowed priests much more access to their children than parents would today. So the priests were working with these young boys they made friends, they mentor them. This is the classic pattern of coaches and athletes. Young person begins to feel special is learning from the adult is maybe getting treated to special other favors like trips and. And Training and perhaps money gifts and other forms of generosity that grow out of. What I would call normal relationship and then. The relationship. Develops into abuse. On the subject of homosexuality and its role in the Abuse Crisis Smith has this caution within the Catholic Church. There is a very strong desire to have this problem of abuse answered more simply. Then to account for the ability of human beings to abuse one another, and that is two point to homosexuality. Homosexuality is here.

"The first time I spoke with Smith. She took me back in time. She told me that any study of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church must be retrospective in nature. Granted cases of sexual abuse continue to occur. They continue to be reported and transparency and accountability continued to be issues. All that said, the number of cases taking place today are nowhere near where they were in the nineteen sixties and Seventies. The John Jay reports clearly document the downward trend since two thousand four according to reports required under the Dallas. Charter there have been nearly ten thousand total abuse allegations against clergy, but ninety six percent of those took place before two thousand and ninety percent were from before nineteen ninety. I asked Smith what would account for this? The pattern of abuse in the church is a temporal pattern. And it reflects the same pattern that we see in crime in divorce in sexual behavior and drug a drug use a drug experimentation between. Nineteen sixty and nineteen eighty. The number of cases increases each year until the late seventies and then begins to decline fairly precipitously. After the Second World, War America was booming the expanding economy. made it possible for young people to get married and achieved the American Dream Home? Ownership. They started families and huge numbers and sent their children to the expanding network of Catholic schools. So. The church was expanding the Catholic. Church. was growing.

Through the sixties and seventies, there was increasing discussion about freedom from historic norms freedom from traditional things that had not been approved and experimentation with drugs and with sexuality. Tremendous percentage of priests left the priesthood. But when you look at the reasons why they left the priesthood. They to marry. Or they left to. Develop..

"Priest. Couldn't see that there could be another Catholic priest like this. Bhutan soon realised how wrong he was. In Nineteen eighty-five Mouton met with Father Thomas Doyle who was a chemist at the Vatican embassy and father, Michael Peterson who was the founder of St Luke's institute a Rehabilitation Center for priests. A lawyer, a Canon EST, a psychiatrist WHO's buried expertise put them in the perfect position to speak authoritatively on the problem of sex-abuse in the church. The three men began gathering evidence around the country. And I mean, the evidence was just astounding. Gr- on the phone all day are in hotel rooms all week all over the country would be one city one day where we would meet with the Bishop in the vicar general and the psychologists that they consulted with, and then I would interface with the lawyer and then the next day we would go to a retreat house and talk to hundreds of race the whole diocese and make a presentation to about the canonical factors. The clinical factors the legal factors, criminal factors that civil factors, and then we'd get on a plane and go somewhere else and do it all over again over and over and we became brothers. And we really believed. Incredibly naively? The Not only. Were we going to save children from the Church? We believe we we're going to save the church from itself. We thought the hierarchy would really care if we could produce all of this evidence. moutain doyle on Peterson completed a ninety two page memorandum to the bishops. It warned that sexual abuse in the church was a massive problem that would carry unprecedented consequences. Copy was sent to every bishop in the spring of Nineteen, eighty five but it did not become public for against another year or two reporter Jason. Berry covered the abuse crisis in the nineteen eighties including extensive reporting on the go take case if you look at it, today it. Frankly. It's. It's rather prescient They say that if the church does not take on an aggressive posture and embrace reforms that the number of finance, the financial losses could well exceed billion dollars. That was written in nineteen, eighty, five I think the number today is closer to three or perhaps exceeding three billion. warned that abuser priests could not be reformed one section from the report reads quote those presumed to be guilty of sexual misconduct especially, if it involves child-molestation must never be transferred to another parish or post as the isolated remedy for the situation. I have a long section in the book I did in Nineteen Ninety two lead us not into temptation. That report was written. And the role that Bishop, for example of Cleveland played, who read the document end encourage those three men in the writing of it a likewise Bishop Levada of California who later became archbishop and then Cardinal Levada the head of the congregation for the doctrine of the faith many years later he to read it. So, Bernard Law as cardinal of Boston was the man that these three guys had looked to. He even set Tom Doyle thousand dollars for the duplicating costs for the Xeroxing to get the documents sent to all the bishops, and then they all walked away from it nobody wanted to touch it. We thought if we gave them all the evidence how bad it was that they would act responsibly and morally and ethically and reach out to heal the victims and turn over the criminals. To police authorities and then Muthana told me the bishops turned on them it got pretty brutal. Love said we relying you know that they're absolutely was not present crisis. And whatever did exist couldn't possibly grow to scandalous proportions but they said we relying that we were making up literally called me a legal extortionist. One of the Louisiana Bishops wrote the noon Co the pope's ambassador in a country to discredit the authors of the report saying that the three men simply wanted to make money off the situation. The bishop notably called the clergy abuse of children a pedophile annoyance. They said I was making this up to generate fees for mellow practice when the fact was going the date on the letter. Where Bishop Quinn accusation against me. Is a date after my office was closed. I wasn't looking for fees from anybody. A Retard Jason Berry wrote about this in his book, lead us not into temptation I asked him why would the Catholic Bishops React this way to report that by all accounts was just trying to help the church avoid disaster? My answer is Hubris I think the tragic flaw there was the pride they felt in themselves and that this small nuisance would go away. They did not want to hear those three men who were like voices in.

"Two thousand eighteen was a traumatic year in the life of the church and brought down one of America's most and influential bishops. It revealed hundreds of old abuse cases in the Pennsylvania. Grand? Jury? report. and. It led to questions about the hierarchy of the Catholic Church the head never been asked before. The events of that year did force progress and reform ever so slowly. But as Pope Francis has argued. This was never just a problem about processes and rules that can be fixed with legislation. It goes much deeper. It touches on the failure of bishops to act like shepherds. Respond to crimes against children like fathers. Pope Francis recognize this fundamental failure in his letter to the people of God. He wrote. With shame and repentance. We acknowledge as an ecclesial community that we were not where we should been. That we did not act in a timely manner. Realizing the magnitude and the gravity of the damage done to so many lives. We.

"We don't know the details of what was done or not done to discipline McCarrick in the wake of the settlements with seminary and. It wasn't until a former altar boy came forward to report to incidents of sexual assault by mckarrick. Was Fifteen and sixteen years old that the church began to take public. Disciplinary Action. The retired Archbishop of Washington DC is removed from public ministry over allegations. He sexually abused a teenager in New York more than forty years ago. The church says the allegations against eighty-seven-year-old Cardinal Theodore mckarrick to be credible the net pope. Francis. Ordered his removal. He was Archbishop of Washington. The secret settlements I mentioned before also became public at this time. In two thousand eighteen Cardinal Daniel. Dinardo the Archbishop of Galveston Houston was president of the US Conference of Catholic. Bishops. He was essentially the face of the church in the US that summer the weight of the crisis took its toll. He suffered a stroke, the following March fortunately he fully recovered and finished his term as conference president in two thousand, Nineteen I asked him how he reacted to the news McCarrick. I can't say that I knew Cardinal McCarrick extremely well, but I know and I got it on. Once I was named a cardinal in two thousand and seven. And he was retired then but he was still around. So what to find out? Ten years later, what he'd done as a priest and then bishop. I mean Sarah fine to be. A tragedy but horror. You know it's one of those horrors that you say, well, this. person, can't do. That But he he did it. Cardinal Dinardo received thousands of letters from angry Catholics people were angry because this is an insult to the faith placed. In a priest, the Bishop, whatever cardinal of the Catholic Church by. Young olds in between and that he had indeed taken that faith and trust and just a slap everybody's face. That's what it seems like to me. Everybody was slapped and told go away and That really had rage in people that returns me the question I answered earlier of thousands of letters. I, received from Catholics. You Know How could this be? What was the question I have but as a question, really the people God had who would say, how could this person get through and and to such a level of leadership in the Church Cardinal? Dinardo explained to me that priests doesn't become a Bishop And then archbishop and cardinal without a lot of other clerics vouching for him before anyone is ever named it a higher office to Bishop. In the church, there's questionnaires sent around. To all kinds of people. And they say something about that person. And if there's ever a moral issue involved a, that's supposed to be proud of then because it's all confidential. And so I'm perplexed because I'm saying, could that guy get through that far? Just Sommese. Perplexing.

I began this job in the summer of two thousand eighteen weeks after the archdiocese of New York revealed that former boy. Cardinal Theodore mckarrick of sexual assault. One of the first issues I worked on at Catholic University was McCarrick. He was the former archbishop of DC, our former chancellor and an honorary degree recipient. So I was following the story. McCarrick denied everything and there was a lot of confusion. On July nineteenth, the confusion disappeared when the New York Times published the details of grind eighteen year abusive relationship with McCarrick. Accompanied by a picture of the two and their swim trunks. We'll speak to grind more if you drop us out but this picture was profoundly disturbing. I remember feeling physically nauseous and disgusted. And terrified if a cardinal of the Catholic church is a serious sexual predator. How many others are out there? How much more rot is there in the church. How deep or how high this this go. That initial reaction is what led to this podcast. I know from years of working in crisis communications that the first step toward dealing with a crisis is understanding the problem. The root causes in context, and that's what we hope to do over the next ten episodes. In this episode, we'll examine the key events of the summer of two thousand eighteen, a perfect storm of shocking revelations the fall from grace of Theodore mckarrick a damning grand jury investigation of Pennsylvania the letter of Archbishop Carlo Maria Vegan Vigano that accused Pope Francis of knowing about McCarrick..

"In two, thousand, eighteen, the Catholic church faced a shocking new revelation of sexual abuse within its ranks. This time the accused wasn't a troubled parish priest. It was the well-connected powerful retired Archbishop of Washington Cardinal, Theodore mckarrick I. Didn't Know Cardinal McCarrick But I certainly had interacted with him in public life, and it was shocking to hear all of that in the context of someone who has been such a public figure and it was like a punch to the gut. This is crisis clergy abuse in the Catholic Church? I'm your host Karnal Zoya. In two thousand eighteen I had just moved to DC to serve as the spokesperson at the Catholic University of America when the McCarrick News, hit Other revelations from that summer plunged the church into another sex abuse crisis. You could sense anger and frustration from Catholics across the country. Everyone knows asking, how're we still dealing with this problem? To answer this question I teamed up with the Catholic. Project an initiative of Catholic University to make a podcast, we're going to tell the story of clergy abuse. What happened in the summer of two thousand, eighteen white does sex sex-abuse continue to be an issue. And what still needs to be done to bring about healing for survivors and for the church. We spoke with journalists. Crisis to me is that there is a criminal sexual underground. In the Catholic clergy culture and it has. Been Building. For generations victim survivors of sexual abuse and he said to me. Who's ever going to believe you don't you know who I am I will destroy you in the press at that doesn't work. I'll have some friends over this. And High Ranking Church officials, I think what happened? In too many cases. was there was a confusion between a sin and a crime? I think a number of bishops who may have Reassigned sawed the abuse of a child as sin. And Sins can be forgiven. But crimes have to be adjudicated and there has to be.
