On Catholic Soapbox, Gavin Abraham talks about an editorial by Archbishop Timothy Costelloe of Perth.
Archbishop Costelloe has hit many nails on the head in the excerpts I’ve shared, but even more in the wider article. While I think most people recognise that the sex abuse crisis has severely eroded the Church’s moral standing in society, few have been so explicit in acknowleding it.
And Archbishop Costelloe does it in the right context, saying that while the Church might struggle to be heard in the same way in might have been 20 or 50 or 100 years ago, that doesn’t change the fact that the message is as real and important and resonant as it always has been.
I recommend you read the rest of what Gavin has to say, and also follow his link to the editorial.
