The clergy sexual abuse crisis has left a deep wound in the body of Christ. How can we, the People of God, share our concerns, fears, and even anger about it? How can we deal with it in a constructive, reflective, and prayerful way? How can we help the whole Church move toward justice and healing?
The Wounded Body of Christ is the well-balanced and user-friendly guide we need right now. Filled with Scripture, reflections, discussion questions, and prayers, its four sessions will help parish groups focus on The Church as the Body of Christ, Being a Wounded Body, Healing a Wounded Body, and Anticipating a Glorified Body. Gently leading groups through honest discussions about the nature of the Church, justice, accountability, compassion, mercy, and solidarity, The Wounded Body of Christ will help Catholics find their voices and strengthen their faith.
