Finally, a good story from the local newspaper. Normally don’t touch the rag.
He was abused in 1929. His mother, a non-Catholic believed him and pulled him from the Catholic school. His father and his family who were good friends with the priest in question, did not believe him. It tore apart his family and that’s what saddens this man the most.
This is a wonderful story to read. This man had something terrible happen to him and yet manages to come home again because one good priest countered the evil committed by another eight decades prior. Also, let us not forget that his dying wife, also estranged from the Church had requested Last Rites which started the ball rolling toward reunion. I don’t doubt she prayed for him after death as well.
