Touching the Wounds: A Theological Reflection on Remorse, Reconciliation and the Catholic Church in the Pedophilia Crisis

Dr. David Deane, Professor of Theology, Atlantic School of Theology

While analyses of the pedophilia crisis in the Catholic Church from sociological, psychological and legal perspectives abound, theological analyses are curiously lacking. This presentation seeks to offer a analysis of the theological failures of the Catholic hierarchy in response to the abuse crisis and suggest coherently theological models for how a process of reconciliation might emerge. While aware that a theological perspective on the crisis can never be exhaustive, this presentation aims to offer a theological voice to the conversation, for Christians and non-Christians disturbed by this crisis, to hear.
