A test of faith: National Post


A test of faith: He was molested by a priest — then ordained as a priest with his abuser in the room

‘Fr. Thibault, now 54, was one of the victims. He was repeatedly molested by this priest, who was a false friend and mentor who encouraged his vocation to the priesthood, even formally vouched for his worthiness at his ordination as deacon, a ceremony spoiled by suppressed rage. When he tried to speak up, the cloistered Catholic hierarchy leapt to denial, and shuffled the abuser to other parishes, where the abuse complaints continued.’

that’s a beautiful story, and a testament to the power of God’s love. thank you for sharing it.

Agreed, Fr. Thibault’s story is a powerful testament to Faith.
