the church now. is not going to happen. something is changing it is a process that needs time and i told about victims of abuse like canadian leona hawkins who was abused by a priest from the age of twelve reassured by what they've heard from the meeting so far as survivors were on the outside i'm concerned some of the things that i'm hearing coming out the bishop said this morning that we're looking for mercy for both the survivor and the perpetrator this focus should be. on the survivors only on the crime of clergy abuse you know what you hear they may be on the outside but survivor groups like ending clergy abuse are still trying to keep up the pressure hoping that their message is getting three the phrase they keep using here is the reason that i don't know why they wanted sex abuse to thrive and i know the priest
