Abstract:

Tom Keneally, ex-seminarian, pulls no punches as he interrogates the terrible damage done to innocents as the Catholic Church has prevaricated around language and points of law, covering up for its own. Ex-communicated to Canada due to his radical preaching on human rights, Father Frank Docherty is now a psychologist and monk. He returns to Australia to speak at a conference, and unwittingly is drawn into the stories from two different people who claim to have been sexually abused by an eminent Sydney monsignor. As a man of character and conscience, Docherty knows he must fo all he can to bring the matter to the attention of the Church itself, and to secular authorities, no matter ar what personal cost. This riveting, courageous and profound novel is an exploration of faith as well as an examination of marriage, of conscience and celibacy, and of what has become one of the most controversial institutions, the Catholic Church.
