"The most helpful and prophetic piece of writing, to date, on this agonizing topic"

Excerpt from Father McCafferty's Letter to the Editor

Father Paddy McCafferty, the Irish priest and abuse-victims' advocate I wrote about yesterday, has a letter today in the Irish News in which he urges an individual who expressed skepticism about the emotional effects of childhood sexual abuse to read My Peace I Give You. I am deeply honored and grateful for this endorsement from the priest who wrote the landmark "Liturgy of Lament and Repentance" that was led by Cardinal Sean O'Malley at Dublin's pro-cathedral last year.
