Parents discovered the paintings of their 5-year-old daughter, and realized she was trying to tell them something
Unfortunately, we hear too many stories about priests and other religious and orthodocs prominent figures abusing children. We will never understand that.
In Brazil, the parents of a 5-year-old girl learned the horrifying truth about their priest when their daughter drew some paintings.
The priest, Joao da Silva, 54 years old, admitted to abusing the girl when her parents confronted him.
A girl was taken to a meeting with a child psychologist, who suspected that the priest was sexually abusing her and asked the parents to look in her room for signs of this.
That was the moment they found the pictures she had drawn.
According to Karina Maia, a representative of the Delegation for Stopping Crimes Against Women pressure group, who spoke to the local media: "We found six drawings in the girl's room. One of them that caught our attention shows the face of a naked man with an erect penis."
The paintings leave no room for imagination.
You can see a person leaning over a girl (who is very scared). Da Silva was arrested by the Brazil Police on charges of sexually abusing a girl. Let’s hope he never gets a chance to hurt another boy or girl ever again.
The incident happened in the city of Montes Claros, in Minas Gerais in Brazil, in 2016.
