I'm joined by Sam Unglo.
Sam has published a book The Murder of Innocence: The Truth about Sexual Abuse and the Catholic Church.
The book is about how Sam's brother Michael was groomed and abused by a trusted Catholic Priest for years and unfortunately Michael passed away due to the history of the torment he received.
Sam talks very openly regarding his brother and why he wrote the book, what was the aftermath and how the Church dusted it under the carpet for many years! Change is needed and Michael's story is a catalyst to that change!
You can pick up the book at: https://www.amazon.com/Murder-Innocence-Sexual-Catholic-Church/dp/1733245308
Discovery of his brother: Sam discusses how he found out about his brother who was a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of a church priest.
Reason for writing the book: Sam explains why he felt compelled to write a book about his brother's experience and the impact of sexual abuse on victims and their families.
Church cover-up: Sam sheds light on the ways in which the church attempted to cover up the abuse and protect the abuser. He speaks about the systemic issues that enabled the abuse to continue for so long and the importance of holding institutions accountable.
Advice for survivors: Sam shares his advice for those who have been victims of sexual abuse, emphasizing the importance of seeking support and not feeling ashamed or isolated.
Suicide: Sam also touches upon the issue of suicide, which is often a result of trauma and abuse, and encourages survivors to reach out for help if they are struggling.
