I have just returned from seeing my three year old God-daughter, Tatiana, who is in hospital. Her mother rang me and asked me to come but was unable to tell me what happened over the phone.
When I got to the hospital, I heard the most horrific news any God-parent or parent can hear.
Tatiana has been sexually assaulted.
I'm too angry to pray right now, and too filled with hate. All I could manage was to light the vigil lamp, but I couldn't even look at the Icons with a heart filled with as much anger and hatred as mine is right now. And I have just punched a hole in my study door with my fist and my hand is killing me.
My Goddaughter needs prayers urgently, and I, as her Godfather am failing her right now.
Please, for the Love of Christ, pray for Tatiana.

Phone call from Tatiana's Mother.
A priest friend visited Tatiana in hospital this evening. He anointed her and gave her Holy Communion.
She is sleeping soundly.

Ozgeorge:

Your anger is righteous anger! I feel for you. May the Lord have mercy on Tatiana and may the Holy Theotokos watch over her.

Holy Father Patrick, thank you for your help!

Lord have mercy!

I wish I could write more to help you, and help all those involved. OTOH, those words are our plea to the Lord, to help heal those affected by this horrible tragedy, and nothing I can write can have any more impact than that.

Thanks guys for your prayers.
You will never know how much it means to us. None of us except Tatiana have slept or eaten, and somehow we are getting through and functioning at some level. I know that we are being carried by those praying for us.
Tatiana was seen by the childrens sexual assault team today- I still can't beleive that such a thing has to exist. Out of all of us, she looks the best. I took her an armful of presents, (as it it the Godparents perogative to spoil them), and she ran and jumped into me for a hug when I arrived, so I had to drop them all. Her mother said that she had been asking for me from the time she got up. I hadn't slept, and looked it, as did her mother and grandmother. She showed me the little Icon of the Theotokos the priest had left her last night, and before she put it back on her bedside locker, without any propmpting, she solemnly crossed herself and kissed it. The went back to playing "chasings" with me. And she's only three....

Lord have mercy. Tatiana will be in my prayers, as will all of you that have been affected by this horrible act. May you all find comfort and healing through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Julia and Tatiana have been moved to a safe location because when Julia went with a police officer to their house this morning to get some belongings, they found the house had been broken in to and the place was trashed. The perpetrator is still at large.
I got to see them for about five minutes before they were taken to their new location by the police, enough time to give Tatiana my baptisimal Cross as Julia couldn't find hers when she went back to the house.

I am very sorry to read this OzGeorge. We have children of our own so imagining how her mother and you all feel is very sad.

I have prayed as well.

OzGeorge, I know your pain, but from a different angle. I'm a police officer, and it is very hard to deal with these things, even from our side. I know what pain you feel, trust me , we feel it too, your pain, your anger and hate, and praying God's judgement down on these 'animals'. I sincerely pray with all my heart and soul for Tatiana, and for you. I pray for her recovery, that she may forgive this 'animal', that we all may forgive him, and pray for him (though this goes against everything in our hearts at the moment). Please let Tatiana know that there is a 'copper' praying for her, and that no matter what, God still loves her and accepts her. What happened is not her fault, she is not to blame. Yes, Oz George, be angry, be disgusted, be viled. What happened is disgusting and vile. But pray. Pray for Tatiana, her family, the healing of her soul, mind, and body, and the hardest thing to do, pray for those who sin against you (and Tatiana). I'm angry and disgusted, I want to kill this man, but, pray for him, forgive him as Christ forgave you, and me, the most unworthy recipiant of his grace. I pray for you Tatiana and OzGeorge.
