How Could a Child of Seven Remember?

by Neville
(Southport, Australia)

Earlier in the year I was greatly distressed to hear and see on national TV a high profile cleric say in the defence of another member of the clergy, that a fifty-year-old person could not remember being molested as a child. I as a child was raised in a home for children and molested on a number of occasions. I am now nearly sixty years of age and still feel the filth imposed upon me by these sick adults. Since I rejected their advances, I was subjected to the likes of toilet duties, etc.


I am still a practising catholic and when troubled by those past experiences, reflect on the second paragraph of the Lords Prayer: "Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us."

God Bless the afflicted.

Just another Nev.
