(CNN)It’s been 70 years since Robert says he was sexually abused by a priest. And in the decades since, his wife and family suffered every day.

“I couldn’t show any affection with my wife,” said Robert, now 83. “My children, I couldn’t hold or hug.”
This is the kind of lifelong trauma endured by hundreds of victims at the hands of Pennsylvania priests.
In a scathing, 887-page report, a grand jury said more than 300 “predator priests” have been credibly accused of sexually abusing more than 1,000 child victims.
