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 !
