The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests
By: Barbara Blaine, President
August 23, 2003
Our prayers go out to the victims of Father John Geoghan as well as to the Geoghan family.
Father Geoghan left a long trail of suffering, pain, and devastation for the more than 100 children he sexually abused, as well as their family members. Yet, Geoghan was a very small part of the Catholic Churchs sexual abuse scandal.
Violence does not solve the problem of clerical sexual abuse or promote healing among victims. It can never be condoned. Rather, victims often find healing by helping and supporting one another and working to ensure that no more children suffer as we did.
