All Beliefs are Welcome Here!

I am a survivor of spiritual abuse ; I was in the Neocatechumenal Way which is a growing evangelical group in the Catholic Church .  Last year I joined after the passing of my mother in order to get help and have a community .  My holistic community rejected me so I went back to church and joined the NCW . But bc I made friends with one of the groups priests ; he and I did have feelings for each other .  Members of this cult as I call it , harassed and abused , and bullied me for being friends with this priest . I trusted these people and was betrayed . My priest friend was sent away and I was left to pick up the pieces . Finally I got out last month and am rebuilding my life , and speaking out about the Neocatechumenal Way and their abuses .   I survived and that is all that matters !

It takes courage and strength to speak about abuse Lisa Marie, thank you for sharing those times, that must have been hard.

We cannot help who we develop feelings for, and to be abused and bullied for that situation is wrong, whatever the expectations from a congregation of its spiritual leader.

I seem to recall from somewhere `let him who is without sin cast the first stone?`

The Church holds its Ministry in expectation of total compliance, but so often fails to comply in its written instruction.

I hope that you both can recover from whats happened and go on to enjoy further relationships where harassment and spite and bullying are not a consequence.

Thank you and I have no idea where my priest friend is but I hope he will be okay 

and I am taking it one day at a time !  ; the RCC needs to change and fix it's problems

and this cult as I call it is a big problem !

The RCC seems to say it `listens` when revelations about Priests abuse of children happen Lisa Marie, but they seem happier to sweep it under a carpet and go silent than be seen to be proactive and prevent things that are wrong.

The RCC is broken and needs fixing big time but sadly that will never happen 

yes I agree . I will worship at home in my own way from now on .  Better that way !

Thanks !
