Abstract:

Sexual abuse within the Catholic Church has been nothing short of an epidemic of catastrophic proportions. The devastation of victims, the ruination of priests and religious, the damage of a major world religion and its faithful are horrendous and incalculable. In the current social environment-that includes the Royal Commission into Institutionalised Sexual Abuse of Children-this is the book that had to happen. This is the book, written by an 'insider', designed to move the Church back into the hands of the millions of shocked and bewildered Catholics throughout the world who are saying: enough is enough. Bishop Geoffrey Robinson states that there are three major tasks to be performed in eradicating sexual abuse from the Church: identifying and removing all offenders; reaching out to, and assisting, all victims/survivors; and identifying and overcoming the causes of both abuse and the poor response of the Church's hierarchy.
