Roman Catholic Church abuse survivors demand justice
Sue Cox was 10 years old when she says she was raped by a priest in her family home on the eve of her Confirmation, a sacrament which signifies the cementing of bonds between baptised believers and the Church.
The attack occurred in her bedroom while her family was downstairs. “I was mortified. I started to self-harm. I was ashamed and guilty,” she said. Her mother told her: “Perhaps it was one of God’s plans.”
It wasn’t one of His better ones,” Cox said.
Michael Hirst of BBC interviewed Cox, who told him:
I feel liberated because I am now able to speak out; I believe that secrets keep you sick.
