Noli me Tangere: A church for the oppressed-putting the abused & vulnerable at the forefront of ecclesial activity and change

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract

The traumatic stories of child abuse by Catholic clergy and religious are being brought to light around the world. As Catholic churches focus on reform, they must prioritize the voices of abuse survivors, including those who experience abuse and oppression outside the church but are in their midst. New psychological insights on the outcomes of childhood abuse and other forms of violence or oppression such as cultural imperialism and exploitation are valuable in reassessing our contemporary ecclesiologies and theologies of sin, grace, transformation, and healing.
