Letter to a Suffering Church

Bishop Barron speaks on the sexual abuse crisis
July 11, 2019 - 8:15pm

The sexual abuse scandal has gripped the Catholic Church for the past thirty years, and continues to wreak havoc even today.  It's been a diabolical masterpiece, one that has compromised the work of the Church in every way and has left countless lives in ruin.  Many Catholics are understandably asking, “Why should I stay? Why not abandon this sinking ship before it drags me or my children under?"

In this stirring manifesto, Bishop Robert Barron, founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries and Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, explains why this is not the time to leave, but the time to stay and fight.
