My friend with whom I am sharing an apartment was sexually and physically abused by a step-father for whom mom ditched daddy when she was two years old. She is not now doing drugs as before, not suicidal as before, took two counseling sessions I paid for before refusing, but is still an alcoholic, especially drinking prodigious amounts when around her family in any way. Her step-sister is investigating the disappearance of their 12-year-old babysitter 30 years ago, presumed murdered by my friend’s step-father, now dead. Mom, also physically abused, is suspected of knowing or suspecting something about step-dad’s involvement. Mom did leave step-dad when finding out about the sexual abuse but all the kids were extremely physically abused and can have violent tempers and anger issues and alcohol and/or drug abuse.
The recent arrests of six Missouri men for child rape during that same time frame is bringing up intense collateral anger as this is the same area she is from although the sexual assaults occurred while the family was in California. I am begging mega-prayers for this 34-year-old as well as her brother, step-brother and sister. Please pray for me to be protected as she has whipped a knife out twice while drunk. I am dealing with my own issues of family abuse after the death of my mom and my much older brother, sexually and physically abusive in childhood, piled on to the point of stalking me, having me evicted from the family home I was to have stayed in until sold, and maligning me to his drunken friends which may have incited them to malicious acts. So hiding out, I got into another family’s dangerous situation. Please pray for miracles here. This lady was going to Mass with me and making tremendous progress until her Reformed Baptist step-sister dissed the Catholic Church, so please ask the Good Shepherd to help all around. I don’t doubt that my brother, who hyper-masculinizes, could have been molested himself as this is one symptom. I need to be forgiving and calm down and deal with my life wisely. HOLY TRINITY, BRING YOUR MIRACULOUS PROVIDENCE, ALL FOR YOUR HONOR AND GLORY! AMEN
