Neither priests nor the public really understand what survivors of clergy sexual abuse go through, but they’re beginning to, says survivor Teresa Pitt Green.

Co-founder of Spirit Fire, a national “Christ-centered restorative-justice group” that helps Catholic churches reach out to survivors, Pitt Green recounted her personal story of being abused by a priest as a minor on a Sept. 30 episode of the podcast “Crisis: Clergy Abuse in the Catholic Church.”

She has also been working with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Columbus on its response to the sexual abuse of minors by clergy since May 2019.

The podcast, which premiered Sept. 9, is produced by the Catholic Project. It has 17,379 subscribers. Pitt Green is featured, alongside another survivor, on episode four of the podcast, which ran Wednesday.
