to Part of the Papal Apology Pilgrimage
“Bishop Barbara was initially reluctant to seek admission to the ceremonies. There are so many others who need to be there; but her connection to the sites, and to the ministry of reconciliation are many and strong…. ‘I want to bear witness for those who won’t hear the apology. I have concern for the next generation. I have seen and felt the effects of intergenerational trauma myself. I am concerned for future generations, including that of my children and of my grand-daughter Leah.'”
