'They’d put me in a room with nothing to eat and no windows. Then they would cut my hair to the bone'
A survivor returned this week to the Magdalene Laundry where she had been forced to spend her youth.
Mary has not been to church for decades and who would blame her.
She says that she still believes and prays.
Obviously she has realised that there is a massive distinction between God and those people who "CLAIM" to be God's servants.
She no longer needs them to talk to God. She goes directly to God. She has cut out the power abusing and money making middle men and women.
The real Christian Mary met was not any of those wicked nuns or clergy - but MRS CRONIN who treated her with Gospel values and love.
Jesus constantly talked about judging people by their fruits.
Mrs Cronin showed love, Christian compassion and practical care.
The nuns showed exactly the opposite.
If there are a hierarchy of places in heaven Mrs Cronin will rank very high.
I would not like to be one of those wicked nuns or indeed their bishop and priest masters approaching the Pearly Gates or the judgement seat of God.
