Another quote from the Dies Irae which means : All will be revealed. Not consciously linked to the coming into the open of many a paedophilia scandal in the RCC but rather to some flashbacks of the gluey and oppressive guilt-inducing atmosphere I remember from schooldays, where priests were obsessed with sex but in an curved way. Certainly not directed at womanfolk.
As usual, the title of the work was added later. I did not mean to create a critical work on child abuse. Yet unconsciously the abuse of children by bishops and priests can well have influenced this work. It did indeed make me think back of the time wasted at school.
If there must be a link, it has to be with the exceptional book 'Melodien' by Helmut Krausser.
