I will also add you to my prayer list. <img loading=” title=”Very Happy” /> I second what Jon said about trying to separate God from your experiences with priests. It is good that you still have faith and interest in the Church. My advice (and you probably already know this) would be is to take it slow. It is not likely your fears of continuing to participate in the Church will vanish overnight, but take small steps. I also think that starting with short prayers is a good way to take those small steps.

I can definitely understand your feelings and fears because of what you have been through in relation to your emotional abuse by priests. I will continue to keep you and the priests in my prayers.

And remember, YOU are LOVED by God!
