Dr. Ansel Augustine shares what he would say to a victim of clergy sexual-abuse.
In response to the crisis of abuse unfolding in our Church, The CatholicTV Network began a six-month journey of penance and prayer called Together We Rebuild November 6, 2018. The network's goal is to provide hope and encouragement for all those who are suffering and to offer prayerful resources focused on healing and restoration. Each month, Together We Rebuild will be guided by a theme and will include corresponding multimedia content. Please join us in penance and prayer. Let’s begin rebuilding together.
Watch these powerful video testimonies that try to answer questions Catholics, Christians and non-believers alike may have. In November, we asked "What would you say to a sexual-abuse victim?" In December, "Why are you still Catholic?" The new year began with the question "What would you say to someone considering leaving the church?"
CatholicTV hosts Father Dan O'Connell and Tommy Tighe, a clergy-sex abouse survivor, and other Catholic influencers have sent in their testimonies. We would like to see and hear what you have to say. Send your videos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can see these testimonies on The CatholicTV Network shows This is the Day and Encounter.
