Abstract

This edition of 'St Mark's Review' offers constructive proposals for how Australian churches might respond to the Royal Commission and its findings. This article offers an analysis of the findings of the Royal Commission, as far as they relate to the Catholic Church in Australia, as a starting point for the discussion. After all, an authentic response to the Royal Commission - let alone genuinely constructive proposals as opposed to knee jerk reactions - presupposes an objective analysis of its findings. In the course of providing this analysis, I discuss the limitations of the investigative processes of the Royal Commission. I also offer a corrective to the inaccurate media accounts of the findings of the Royal Commission.
