This NEW video from Bishop Barron focuses on an important question about the sexual abuse crisis: What’s the way forward?
According to Bishop Barron, we need three things. First, we need institutional reforms, building upon the changes put in place in 2002, which have reduced cases of sexual abuse down to a trickle.
Second, we need a deep and abiding spiritual reform, beginning with the priesthood but including lay men and women.
Third, we need movement of renewal and reform—new orders, new groups, and new works of the Spirit.
As Bishop Barron concludes, “I know many Catholics are sorely tempted to just give up on the Church, to join another religious group, or perhaps to become one of the religiously unaffiliated. But this is not the time to leave; it is the time to stay and fight.”
