Mea Maxima Culpa (Silence in the House of God.)

This is a powerful documentary about the sexual abuse of Deaf Children by a Catholic Priest in the USA.

The use of the to camera pieces, with the victims, signing to the camera with an interpreter speaking over them was a good way of doing it.

The pace of the documentary as it opened up the cover-up scandal and then expanded it into the vatican itself and laid the allegations at the feet of the pope was well done.

It is truly staggering and shocking what went on and the extent of how powerless, good priests and bishops were to stop it and protect the victims.

Should you watch this? Yes, it’s a tough watch but I think  an important one.
