A recent Gallup poll has revealed that 37% of Catholics are considering leaving the Church due to the sexual abuse crisis. That’s disheartening, but this new book can help.
As Bishop Barron writes in the preface, “I have written this book for my fellow Catholics who feel, understandably, demoralized, scandalized, angry beyond words, and ready to quit. What I finally urge my brothers and sisters in the Church to do is to stay and fight – and to do so on behalf of themselves and their families, but especially on behalf of those who have suffered so grievously at the hands of wicked men. Of course, I’m also happy if those outside the Church find some illumination in these chapters as well…My prayer is that these reflections might encourage Catholics who are attempting to navigate today in very choppy waters.”
