Rupnik’s abuse survivors: Remove his art!

Calls to remove the artwork of alleged abuser Father Marko Rupnik are growing – and clerical abuse survivors say the issue speaks volumes about how the church views them and their pain. Says Sara Larson, executive director of Awake, a survivor support and advocacy organization, “When we say we want to be close to victim-survivors, to accompany them in their pain, do we really mean it? Are we willing to listen to survivors and take action based on their needs, or are these simply empty words?”
