Catholic church clericalism cover up of sexual abuse — what laity can do?
“As Christians our faith is in a person, Jesus Christ, not in an institution.” says Fr. Larry at Resurrection Catholic Community on 8/26/2018.
As a response to the recent information of cover up of abuse by the Catholic Church [of 1,000 children by 300 Catholic priests over 70 years] the laity/ people in the congregation may simply walk away.
Fr. Larry suggests that every parish start a conversation to purify the Church.
The Church must be accountable to the People he says. Fr. Larry suggests ways how to confront clericalism and “demand a place at the Table of Authority…”
Lately, Pope Francis has gotten criticism concerning the church’s handling of sexual abuse.
