Healing Wounds

Marie Collins was abused by a hospital chaplain when she was 13. This week she will tell her story to bishops around the world. Not only did the abuse damage her faith in the Catholic Church. It affected her life as a mom.

I couldn’t do the things with my son that I’d like to do. I had agoraphobia, I couldn’t take him out to play. I couldn’t take him on picnics. I really felt he was losing out in his life as a child. He didn’t have a mother who could do all the things that a mother should do.
She told her story to a columnist of the CatholicHerald.
