The Courier - 1 June 2017

Statement from Canberra Goulburn Archbishop Christopher Prowse

   

Frankly speaking...

Last week's Edmund Rice national apology in Canberra was a moving event that captured the emotion and the significance of the occasion. EREA Executive Director Dr Wayne Tinsey acknowledged that the sexual abuse of young children is "part of a destructive and shameful reality in our national history and we are totally committed to ensuring it never happens again." He said EREA hopes the national apology will help in the healing process and be a step towards re-establishing trust.

When a Catholic Community reaches out with honesty, goodwill and integrity there can be optimism for reconnection and healing.

Vatican II, the sexual revolution and clergy sexual misconduct

In light of the proposed Catholic Synod in 2020, there is an issue that, if not included, may prove to be a fatal flaw for the current church hierarchy.

Unless the Synod faces up to another plank in the Church's own eye, that of clergy sexual activity and misconduct, its hopes may well be dashed before they are even discussed.
