Letter to A Suffering Church by Bishop Barron

We just received a shipment of Bishop Robert Barron’s new book: Letter to a Suffering Church: A Bishop Speaks on the Sexual Abuse Crisis.

Here’s the write-up from the back cover:

“Why Stay Catholic with So Much Scandal?

This book is a cry from the heart. I am a lifelong Catholic, and I’ve been a priest for thirty-three years and a bishop for four years. I have dedicated my life to the Church. The sexual abuse scandal has been for me, for millions of other Catholics, and especially for the victim-survivors, lacerating.

I have written this book for my fellow Catholics who feel, understandably, demoralized, scandalized, angry beyond words, and ready to quit.

What I finally urge my brothers and sisters in the Church to do is to 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.”
