New York Times ‘Grav­ity of the sick­ness’

The Observer - - Comment & Analysis -

“Pope Fran­cis has made strides in chang­ing the cul­ture of the pa­pacy and in mak­ing the Catholic church more in­clu­sive, and he seems now to have grasped the grav­ity of the sick­ness af­flict­ing the church. But he will need to look be­yond the cardinals, prelates and priests for so­lu­tions. Any cred­i­ble ef­fort at erad­i­cat­ing the can­cer of sex­ual abuse will re­quire the full par­tic­i­pa­tion of ex­perts, pros­e­cu­tors, vic­tims and many oth­ers — women as well as men. If that runs against tra­di­tion and prac­tice, so be it.”
