How do people of faith respond to the abuse crisis? How do we move toward true healing? Few people are more qualified to answer these questions with clarity and insight than doctor, scholar, and religious sister Nuala Kenny. Backed by her thirty-years’ experience with this issue, she uses her physician’s eye to examine the pathology of the crisis, helping us discover the underlying structures, history, beliefs, and cultural factors as well as the powerful roles of secrecy, denial, and cover-up. With compassion and care, she describes the suffering experienced by victims, diagnoses the sickness afflicting the body of Christ, and offers a prescription for treatment that includes active cooperation between laity and clergy, meaningful reform, and lifelong conversion. This informed, accessible and unique perspective can help the Church prayerfully discern the way forward.
