The Comboni Missionary Order of Verona should take note of Dr Des Cahill, “it was important to rethink the priesthood as a position not of power but of service.” Service, is not shouting at an abuse victim “you and your friends are all money grabbers.”
Service is not saying to a victim of sexual abuse: “if you are waiting for an apology you will be waiting a long time and your wait will be in vain,” (Superior of the Comboni Mother House, Verona, April 2015)
Service is not dismissing a victim of abuse by saying: “There is nothing here for you. I will pray for you.” (Superior of the Comboni Mother House, Verona, April 2015)
Service is not the Comboni Order taking a victim to court after he met and forgave his childhood Comboni priestly abuser.
