Hi Deirdre,Some of you may be interested in looking up a documentary called Silence In The House Of God
It's about a home for deaf boys who were abused in the U S A
There has been quite some publicity for this Docu/Film.Title Mea Maxima Culpa:Silence in the house of God.
I for one will certainly watch it when it is released.I expect it will be quite harrowing to watch.Though, for us who suffered in our childhood from abuse by the nuns...we can cope with most things in our present day lives.
The reviews are not favourable to Joseph Ratzinger the present Pope, who was a Cardinal at the time the abuse was reported.....nothing was done to stop the abuse.
It will be very interesting to watch and form our own judgements.
