Each of us, as members of our Catholic community, can contribute to the healing of those harmed by abuse by remembering survivors in our prayers:

Mindful that Jesus’ resurrection transforms all who believe, we as church embrace our shared responsibility to protect our children and youth, and to ensure that they grow up knowing they are safe and loved. In solidarity with those victims who have endured the pain of abuse, we re-dedicate ourselves to their healing by increasing our own awareness and understanding, by contributing to the safe environment and practices of our church, and by extending our efforts out into the world.

Cada uno de nosotros, como miembros de nuestra comunidad católica, podemos contribuir a la sanación de los que fueron heridos por el abuso recordando a los sobrevivientes en nuestras oraciones:

Conscientes de que la resurrección de Jesús transforma a todos los que creen, nosotros, como iglesia, aceptamos nuestra responsabilidad compartida de proteger a nuestros niños y jóvenes, y asegurarnos de que crezcan sabiendo que son seguros y amados. En solidaridad con aquellas víctimas que han sufrido el dolor del abuso, nos re-dedicamos a la sanación en creciendo nuestra propia conciencia y comprensión, contribuyendo al ambiente seguro y las prácticas de nuestra iglesia, y extendiendo nuestros esfuerzos hacia el mundo.
