Time to get back to blogging

There have been a number of factors leading up to this post. After all, it has been over eighteen months since I have posted anything. It has been nearly two years since "click", the day I definitively stepped out the door into the real world and began to live again. Since then so much has happened. 
I have been made Pastor of a Parish in Brazil, have worked to bring new life into the parish and do a lot of needed renovations. But must of all I have worked to get rid of a lot of excess baggage that I have been carrying from my legion years. It has not been easy, but has been bearing its fruits. 


So it seems to me the time has come to start writing again. Why? because there is so much that I need to get out, and the shared experience helps others who have gone through the same or other nasty experiences. 


I recently read Sheila's story and was moved to write. 
Then I saw life-after-rc.com started a thread inspired by -9 years of lies.
I have been keeping things to myself, there are only two other priests I can talk to about this, and I don't get to see them very often. I really need to get things off my chest. 

So the time has come to revamp this blog. I thought of starting a new one. In fact there are two others I toyed with. But I was never motivated to write stuff on them. So I will refurbish this one and write stuff that happened to me in the legion. Hope it turns out well.

  1. I'm so glad my story inspired you, Father! I find writing very therapeutic. Though I have less to get over -- only two years of their poison. Seems like all the ex-LC's were given much more poison, so the recovery will be longer. God bless you for sticking it out and serving the Church for real this time.
