Hello & Welcome:)

My name is Maria and I extend a warm welcome and my hand in friendship to you all :-)

On my site you will find my own poetry that I have written reflecting on my feeling's and emotion's of my abusive childhood growing up in the care system at Nazareth House for thirteen years I was in two of these orphanages in Scotland UK from two years old until I was fifteen.  Throughout my childhood I endured the most brutal appalling abuse imaginable this was very physical abuse and psychological and verbal abuse I was a mere child no matter what, I did not deserve this appalling behaviour from such angelic faces of the cloth who were known as The Poor Sisters of Nazareth but today are know as Sisters of Nazareth they have dropped the Poor now from their title. One of the statements issued to date to the media by no other than Mario Conti who was Bishop of Abedeen when I resided there was it was discipline this was not just simply discipline it was outright cruelty in my opinion and I deemed to break my silence after forty five years when the first case against Nazareth House and the Catholic Church in Scotland took place in 2000 the nun Sister Alphonso aka Marie Docherty  was charged and found guilty of child abuse but after direction from the sheriff to the jury the sentence Sister Alphonso received was admonishment this to me was not justice in my opinion it was a sham a whitewash again failing the many victims/survivors of abuse at Nazareth House:(. Sister Alphonso stated how sorry she was in that courtroom yet to date we the former children have not heard one word of regret or an apology to any of us that is how sorry she was si in my opinion an act purely for the benefir of the courts and hardly sincere in any way otherwise we would have heard her apologise publicly to us all in my opinion this to me is
TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE and APPAULING.....
:-(
 
To date we have not heard any words of regret from the Catholic Church but what we have heard is the flippant remarks from one Bishop Conti of Aberdeen Scotland who is now Cardinal Conti, for example remarks like these things happened so long ago in reply I say to Mario Conti by your very remarks you are condoning this brutal sadistic treatment endured by many of the former children who grew up at Nazareth House your remarks have a total complete lack of compassion or caring for the victims/survivors from these orphanages. No one from the Catholic Church have offered us the victims/survivors any help whatsoever for example setting up support phone lines etc and yet your guidelines state if alleged child abuse or proven child abuse then we will set up helplines counselling etc NO action has to date been taken by any of you for this to be put in place I ASK YOU ALL WHY NOT? so the many victims/survivors are left alone crying their many silent tears this inaction by you the Catholic church is to me 
TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE
:-(
 
The reason I decided to have my websites is because the Catholic Church and Nazareth House are still in denial of what abusive practises occurred in these evil homes you know we are telling the truth and nothing but the truth so why the denials?. In Scotland alone there are 500+ victim's of these homes who have lodged claims against Nazareth House & the Catholic Church . These stories are not just here in the United Kingdom but are worldwide I have spoken to many survivors from these homes like myself who suffered the most appalling abuse from such angelic faces but when the abuse occurred to me those faces were of the utmost hate. In having my websites I am exposing your appalling abuse that went on in my opinion and was systematic throughout in such a brutal appalling regime filled with endless fear and trepidation @ Nazareth House and today there are very many silent voices unable to come forward for whatever reason to speak of what they did endure and if I can help by my website being here to perhaps inspire just one victim to take the very couragous first steps to speak out and expose your cruelty then to me it has all been worthwhile and my website is also in remembrance of the victims/survivors who never made it and sought a quieter peaceful place to rest their weary heads never forgotten always remembered I speak out for all of you also by stepping forward to reveal my and every other little child's abusive treatment we were forced to endure of which we had no choice or control over.

I hope that you enjoy your visit to my website although speaking about abuse is not an easy topic to read or hear but hope I have not made it to depressing for you I have not dressed it up with any frills or niceties this is how my childhood life was for me and many other little children in these homes.

I wish all visitors to my site Love Peace & Happiness throughout their lives and may the world be gentle to you all and treat you kindly also my best wishes to you all and your families with much love

I was put into care in Nazareth House Convents in Scotland (UK) the first one was in Cardonald Glasgow from the age of 2-11 and the second one was in Aberdeen Scotland from the age of 11-15

It took me 45 years to break my silence of the appalling abuse I endured along with countless other children in these homes my heart was broken and torn throughout my years of torment in these homes and the endless fear that swept through these particular convents behind the closed doors was abhorrent.

I was christened a Catholic but through the sadistic actions of abuse by the Catholic Priests and Nuns to  me my faith left me a long long time ago their brutality knew no bounds and still today in my adult life I carry the deep emotional scars  

My reasons for breaking my silence after remaining silent for so long is because after the first case against Nazareth House and the Catholic Church came to court, Sister Alphonso-Marie Docherty was found in a court of law Guilty of child abuse her sentence after direction from the sheriff to the jury was one of admonishment myself and many other childhood survivors could only watch and listen with dismay to us all this was like an almighty slap in the face for all we endured growing up in Nazareth House how can this be called JUSTICE?????

I AM CALLING ON THE CATHOLIC CHURCH TO ISSUE A PERSONAL APOLOGY FOR THEIR CRUELTIES TO ALL CHILDREN THE ONES WHO HAVE SINCE STEPPED FORWARD AND FOR THE SILENT ONES WHO JUST CANNOT FOR WHATEVER REASON BUT THEY ALSO NEED THAT APOLOGY TO BEGIN TO MEND AND HEAL THE MANY BROKEN HEARTS OUT HERE BY SUCH CRUEL AND SADISTIC ACTIONS METERED OUT TO ALL OF US ABUSED FORGOTTEN CHILDREN FROM NAZARETH HOUSE CONVENTS THIS IS MY PLEA TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCH ON BEHALF OF US ALL AND FOR THE VERY MANY VICTIMS/SURVIVORS WHO FOUND A QUIETER PLACE TO REST THEIR WEARY HEADS YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN MY PLEA ON BEHALF OF YOU ALL TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCH:-(

I URGE ALL VISITORS TO MY SITE TO PLEASE SIGN MY PETITION /GUEST BOOK TO ACHIEVE THIS APOLOGY I DO NOT KNOW IF IT WILL WORK BUT AT LEAST IT IS A START TO DATE WE THE SURVIVORS HAVE NOT HEARD ONE WORD OF REGRET NO REMORSE SHOWN NO COMPASSION OR ANY APOLOGY FROM THE NUN WHO LET US NOT FORGET STATED IN A COURT OF LAW HOW VERY SORRY SHE WAS BUT SHE WAS THAT SORRY NO APOLOGY HAVE WE RECEIVED TO DATE JUST MORE WORDS YET AGAIN OR HAVE WE HEARD ANYTHING FROM THE CATHOLIC CHURCH  WHO WAS FOUND GUILTY OF CHILD ABUSE OR ANY APOLOGY:;;-(THIS  IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE TO ME PERSONALLY THEIR SILENCE AND CONTEMPT SHOWN TO THE VICTIMS/SURVIVORS FROM THESE ORPHANAGES IS DEAFENING TO SAY THE LEAST IT IS APPALLING AND A SHEER SCANDAL WORLDWIDE FROM NAZARETH HOUSE HOMES:-( IT IS JUST UNACCEPTABLE FOR US ALL I SAY TO NAZARETH HOUSE & THE CATHOLIC CHURCH DO YOU NOT SEE OUR SILENT TEARS???? DO NOT SEE OUR PAIN & TORMENT PLEASE LET US HEAL AND APOLOGISE TO ALL OF US NOW ....
