Bishop Robert Barron speaks on the sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church the book Letter to a Suffering Church.
From Bishop Barron’s Preface;
Why stay Catholic with so much Scandal? I have written this book for my fellow Catholics who feel, understandably, demoralized, scandalized, angry beyond words and ready to quit. What I urge my brothers and sisters in the Church to do is 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.
Copies are available in the entrances of the church.
