Sex Abuse Reform: Restoring Truth, Faith, and Morals – Sep 03 – Homily – Fr Alan

Views 1143


On the memorial of St. Gregory the Great (Pope & Doctor of the Church, Sept. 3), Fr. Alan explains how the current crisis of sexual abuse within the Church conspicuously points to the need for reform, beginning by restoring the principle of truth in matters of faith and morals, especially with regard to sexual behavior.

St. Gregory reformed the Church in his day, addressing lost discipline in the clergy and in the liturgy by restoring the sense of sin and of the sense of the sacred. These fundamental issues are today undermined by the loss of the principle of truth, through relativism. A sense of truth must be restored in order to resolve the crisis at the root.
