I love this....
"The greatest act of faith that we can do is to forgive others their faults and failings. I was traumatized for much of my life. No one will pay for what was done to me, but I don't have any hate or bitterness for them.
If people have hurt us within the church, don't give up the church because of a few. You are the church and belong there.
I have met my share of hurtful people ~ priests and religious and others who have judged and treated me horrible. But there is no person on earth that will pull me away from where I belong.
Stand with your head up and move forward, praying for those who have hurt you and by doing this, you will find God."
