Rae Stabosz hates the pain caused by the clergy sexual abuse scandals in the Catholic Church -- the pain of victims, the pain of priests, the pain of devout parishioners.

The 56-year-old mother of nine, who is a member of Holy Family parish near Newark and president of Catholic Scholars of Delaware, sees the anguish from many angles.

She has a friend who is a priest and was relieved of his ministry for one charge. She has other friends who have been victims of sexual harassment and sexual abuse. Other friends are ministering faithfully -- day in, day out.
