We’ve always had issues up for discussion at Catholic universities.
We are the meeting place, an entity that’s trying to connect faith and culture.
The Spirit hasn’t deserted the church today.
Now where people are – at least the people I talk to – they are focused on issues of trust. Accountability also comes up, to make sure that this doesn’t happen again.
What I think we can do is help individuals understand the church teaching, but also maybe help the church understand the viewpoint of lay men and women about what they want in regard to priests, or how do they want the hierarchy to deal with them?
I am very confident that the Spirit is with us.
