Catch up

Catch up

A Story by Kathryn Smith

It's been a while! 

My life (as well as all of your lives, I'm sure) has turned upside down due to the pandemic. 

But something in 2020 was beautiful. 

Also radical. 

Different. 

Scary. 

Exhilarating. 

Wondrous. 

I'm still pinching myself. 


Long story short, I fell in love with a Catholic Priest. 

In June he had false allegations put out against him of sexual assault. 

He is still facing hearings. 

Meanwhile, I still loved him. 

While the world turned their backs on him and labeled him as this monster; I stood beside him. 

He left the Priesthood. 

He taught me how to fish. 

Taught me how to waterski.

Showed me his lake life in the summer. 

I was his first kiss. 

He took care of me when I was sick. 

He left me soup when I later had Covid. 

in front of every person he used to preach; we attend mass together.

I can feel the judgment. 

I can feel the knives. 



And I continue to love him. 

And forever will. 



I am still so scared; but God listened.

Only we know truth. 

He is so hurt, so tortured, battered and bruised...but I have seen so much success in him. 

Together we move forward. 


God didnt put us here on earth to turn our backs on each other. 

He put us here to walk hand and hand through fire. 

If we are lacking in faith it us up to us to carry one another through this crazy thing called life. 

I'm ready for battle and forever will be.
