Awareness and Purification – Acts of the Meeting for the Protection of Minors in the Church
Product code :854764
Publisher :Twenty-Third Publications
For four days in February 2019, the Church and the whole world watched as bishops from all over the globe, representatives of male and female religious orders, and some lay people all came together with Pope Francis. Their purpose: to face head-on the tragedy of clergy sexual abuse, and to work together on responsibility, accountability, and transparency.
This book brings you the full texts of that meeting. Here are the searing testimonies of victims. Here are the bishops calling on the whole episcopacy to recognize this not as a regional problem but a global one. Here is the Church struggling to take real first steps to come up with practical ways, in a canonical structure, to hold bishops and other leaders responsible. Full of clear, forceful language, this book is a must-have resource for every parish team to begin the process of moving forward.
