Surviving physical, emotional and sexual abuse at the hands of Catholic priests
[CONTENT WARNING: Sexual and emotional abuse; thoughts of suicide.]
Michael tells how his local priest insinuated his way into the lives of his devout family, before manipulating and abusing him over many years, how he managed to break free, and the difficulties he found when trying to hold those responsible accountable. A heavy listen, a story of abused power, suffering at the hands of people who consider themselves above the law, and the institution that enabled them.
You can find copies of Michael's book at a variety of booksellers worldwide (where possible, use one of the smaller, independent ones), or by going to https://www.behindsacredwalls.com/
If you've been the victim of similar abuse by a priest or other religious figure, you can contact SNAP at https://www.snapnetwork.org/, or if you're a survivor of sexual violence of any kind, there is help available from https://rapecrisis.org.uk/ in the UK, https://www.rainn.org/ in the USA, https://fullstop.org.au/ in Australia, or by searching for similar in your country.
