Whenever Lucinda Walters experiences tragedy and loss, she knows
there's one sure place where she can turn for solace and strength:
her Church. She counts on her faith to carry her through when her
daughter Rita dies, leaving behind two little boys and a devastated
husband with a weakness for alcohol. Lucinda steps in to help her
son-in-law Mike O'Donnell raise David and Jack, and as Mike's
alcoholism progresses, so does her need for the comfort only her
faith can provide. When Father Louis Delanoit offers to spend extra
time with Jack, now twelve years old and just beginning altar boy
training, Lucinda is honored to have her grandson receive special
attention from the priest. But Jack's innocence is shattered when
the priest's true intentions are revealed, trapping the boy in a
web of silence and abuse, woven by Father Delanoit's manipulation
and the blind faith of the community. Blind Faith is the story of
the Roman Catholic clergy sexual abuse scandal as seen through the
eyes of young Jack O'Donnell and his family in the late 60s and
early 70s, and the pain, heartache, and challenge to their faith
which they endured because of one priest's abuse and the systematic
cover-up engaged in by church hierarchy.
