Hand of God is a rivetting documentary film about a young man’s journey through the healing process after being sexually molested by a priest known as Father Birmingham. I doubt the film will be released in India but i intend on screening it as soon as i acquire a copy of the DVD.

On perusing the website i found the letters particularly revealing.. over 30 people responded to Paul’s newspaper advertisements, making one wonder as to how many people exactly had been subjected to Birmingham’s paedophilic tendencies.

Sexual Abuse in Churches has always been a touchy subject, but one hopes that endeavours like Paul’s will serve their purpose in bringing those wronged by their “protectors” peace, healing and justice.
