No need to repeat stories on abuse

I am saddened and angered by the TH's decision to devote eight entire days to the stories of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. These same stories have been reported already. Why repeat them again? I'm also wondering why we haven't seen stories on sexual abuse by other groups in society? What about parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, teachers, etc.? Why hasn't the TH reported on abuse perpetrated by these groups?

The Catholic Church is struggling to heal and to keep its members. These stories only open the wounds again and again. How about a story on all the GOOD works the priests do? I, for one, would like to see that story.
