This is a fairly long speech. It is from an expert, however there are two problems which I address in my response.
OK Francis Sullivan knows more than most about this matter and has had
to be a front man conduit for so much criminal dysfunction. Corruptio
optimi;pessimum. He makes sense in this speech and his blueprint for the
future looks good. However the question is are there now any or enough
people of initiative, who have not already left the in the church, to
do anything about the mess. Most it seems have given away so much power
for so long in childlike dependency on the clergy and hierarchy that
they will be unable manage or work around the authorities appointed in
the last few years by reactionary Vatican officials.
One serious omission in this and other ecclesiastical matters is
spirituality. Most of what was said or taught bout prayer followed the
same dependency dynamic as you would expect from a bovine; sheep and
shepherd leadership. The spiritual development of the person was about
faith, morals and dogma. None of this is necessarily spiritual.
Australia sits in Asia which has several rich spiritual traditions of
meditation and spiritual development. Learning from these might be a way
to reform from the inside out.
