Shocking & Gut Wrenching Testimony given by Victims Of Clergy Sex Abuse

 Survivors recounted instances of abuse in schools, church rectories, and priests' residences




The 58-year-old woman refrained from disclosing the details of the sexual abuse she endured as a child, yet its impact on her was unmistakable during her appearance in a Baltimore courtroom on Monday, where she confronted the head of the Archdiocese of Baltimore.


(Baltimore Sun) “Do you see me now?” she cried toward Archbishop William Lori, who was seated across the courtroom from her. “Do I matter to you now? I suffer from PTSD, from anxiety, from depression and panic attacks. I’m on disability. It will take me days to recover from talking today. I hope you’ve heard my truth and feel the pain I’ve struggled with.”





Her testimony, along with that of seven other abuse survivors who spoke on Monday in the archdiocese's bankruptcy case, painted a harrowing picture of children being victimized by Catholic clergy and provided a stark portrayal of lives forever changed by their ordeals.


The survivors recounted instances of abuse in schools, church rectories, and priests' residences. Many recalled feeling bewildered by what had happened to them and being instructed by their abusers — individuals they admired — to keep silent about it. They shared how the abuse led them to develop substance abuse problems, lose their faith and capacity to trust, and live in seclusion.
