VICTIMS’ SUMMIT BUST
Catalyst December Issue 2010
Last April, the National Catholic Reporter ran a story on the so-called “Victims’ Summit,” a gathering of alleged victims of priestly sexual abuse that was scheduled to take place at the Vatican in St. Peter’s Square on October 31. At that time, Bernie McDaid, one of the organizers, predicted they would amass 50,000 people in a massive show of anger against the Catholic Church.
When the dissident Catholic newspaper recently reported on the event, it mentioned that a grand total of 60 protesters showed up near St. Peter’s Square.
Looks like this issue has run its course.
