I want to thank everyone that views this from the bottom of my heart. Every day that I worked on this project I felt heavy. I had an extreme emotional weight from simply researching and designing the subject. This has made me question: how must the grand jury have felt when doing the two year long process? How must the families of these victims feel? Most importantly: how must the victims feel?
This experience had changed me as a person. I will never forget these stories, these monsters, these innocent victims. On the 7ft long canvas poster I created there are over 300 names, all priests outed as abusers in the report. This is just in 6 of Pennsylvania’s 8 diocese and the grand jury believes they did not get them all. I want everyone, Catholic and non Catholic to learn about this tragedy. I am in no way discrediting religion, rather the corrupt institution that has strategically covered up and allowed sexual abuse of children to continuously occur for decades. This must end.
