Responsible self-disclosure: the only true path to healing,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: When Values Collide: The Catholic Church, Sexual Abuse, and the Challenges of Leadership (Paperback)
The author's courageous willingness to face the reality of the sexual abuse of adolescents by members of his
Franciscan community is truly moving. I had heard reports of what was going on but had little idea of what
this actually entailed, that is, a thoroughly organized,lengthy process of identifying the offenders and
the offended, providing therapy and compensation, and, perhaps most importantly, making a report to the world
at large. Corrections and healthy new directions are indicated, all based on solid research thoroughly documented.
I intend to read it again. The section on St. Francis and St. Bonaventure had much to say to our modern world.
