The Wider Image: Placards outside monastery expose abuse in Spanish Church
The cross of Saint Michael is seen in the surroundings of the Montserrat Abbey, where Miguel Hurtado says he was sexually abused by a Benedictine monk at the age of 16, in Montserrat, outside Barcelona, Spain, February 3, 2019. "For me, the worst part were not the abuses, but the Church covering it up," Hurtado said. He said his abuser, 50 years his senior, touched his genitals under the pretext of telling him masturbation was wrong, and tried to tongue-kiss him, which left him "petrified, without knowing what to do".
