A Litany of All Saints for Abuse Survivors
Congregational Spiritual Center
Angers - France
October 26, 2021
"How can we recover?" asks Sister Margron. "We have not finished having to revisit everything. To do it with the witnesses who have been able to unseal their word, and who, through the tragedy, know with a unique knowledge what is false. (...) I receive your 45 recommendations as a sign of demanding confidence in the Church in France. It is also a sign of hope that we will be able to situate ourselves in the truth of humanity, to be responsible, to do justice and to reform everything that needs to be reformed. But not without each other, not without the witnesses and the witnesses of the witnesses, not without the experience of other institutions, of other churches - without power, humbly. This trust and this hope oblige us, and we are indebted to you, as we are to the victims and witnesses who legitimately ask us for an account.
Sister Véronique Margron to the members of ICASE
Dear sisters and partners in mission,
In order to help us pray in these cruel times for so many people in the Church, you will find attached a proposal for Litanies for victims of abuse, litanies written last year, but of a burning topicality, alas!
So that our Good Shepherd may take us all into his Heart, heal us and make us attentive to all suffering, let us pray together.
