Heal Our Church: A Conversation with James Carroll


JAMES CARROLL’S STATEMENT ABOUT THE TRUTH AT THE HEART OF THE LIE

I am a Catholic. I was crushed to learn about priests sexually abusing childern, and bishops protecting predators instead of victims. As a former priest, and longtime commentator on Catholic issues, I grasped that the problem involved basic systems of Church governance, tied to an unapologetic culture of male supremacy. But this crisis of faith prompted my fresh examination of historic turning points, when the Church chose power over service, from the ancient world to the Middle Ages, to recent years. But I was also forced into a deep personal examination of conscience, confronting ways in which my own life involved me in the structures of male supremacy, personal deceit, and distorted notions of God.

Yet in the writing of this book, I realized that I am still Catholic to the core, resolved to advance Church reform, with an anti-clericalism from within. Even in my place of internal exile, the faith remains my permanent connection to the living presence of Jesus Christ.
