  • Every young child likes to draw. It’s a natural way for them to express their feelings and communicate with the world.

Since their vocabulary and language skills are not at adult levels, drawing can be a more direct form of communication – especially when a child doesn’t know how to tell an adult what happened.

Unfortunately, a pair of Brazilian parents came across some very horrific drawings that their daughter had created. In the sketches, the pictures show the family’s priest sexually abusing the 5-year-old girl. Thankfully, the sexual predator has been brought to justice and the priest is locked in a jail cell…

When 54-year-old Father Joao da Silva was confronted with the sexual assault charges by the 5-year-old girl’s father, he admitted that he attacked the vulnerable little girl and used her for his own twisted pleasures.

The parents started to grow concerned when the 5-year-old girl refused to attend any more of Father da Silva’s English classes. They didn’t know why she didn’t want to learn anymore, so they approached a child psychologist.


Because the child psychologist was experienced, the professional suspected the little girl had been sexually abused. But it was still unclear who had done it.

The psychologist urged the parents to scour the little girl’s rooms for any clues or signs about what could have happened. That’s when the Brazilian parents came across the 5-year-old’s sketches of her and the priest.

In the images, which were hidden in one of the girl’s books, it seems pretty clear that the girl was subjected to physical and sexual abuse by the hands of the priest. The images clearly show a larger man looming over a little girl. The girl is lying on a bed or a desk. The other shows the man forcing his way in between the child’s legs.

The sketched little girl’s expression in both images is one of pure terror.

Because this crime is atrocious, Karine Maia of the Delegation for Stopping Crimes Against Women stated that they found six such drawings among the little girl’s possessions.

Now da Silva is being held in custody over the child abuse allegations.

This story quickly followed the one about the well-known Brazilian priest who hanged himself in jail while he was facing similar child molestation charges. To think that these religious figures are abusing their power to harm and torment children is unspeakable. 

The priest who committed suicide, Bonifacio Buzzi, had been arrested for molesting two young and vulnerable boys. The priest was no stranger to child molestation as he had previously spent time in jail for similar charges. He thought religion could save him from his true nature, but it didn’t. He hanged himself in jail effectively admitting his crimes.

Readers on OpposingViews.com shared their thoughts:

“Some think he should have to face his fellow prisoners, and others think he should be gassed.”

“This stuff needs to be met with capital punishment and met immediately if the evidence is overwhelming. No appeals no delays. Send messages to every perv out there that their days are numbered.”

“The church has to screen their priests far better than this”

Do you think churches should screen their priests?
