When the Church defames her priests

Opus Bono Sacerdotii, sent us a link to an essay co-written by Joe Maher and David Shaneyfelt. Joe is founder and president of Opus Bono and David is an advisor to the priests’ support organization.

The essay essentially concerns itself with publication by dioceses of names of former priests who have had claims of sexual abuse made against them and liability incurred because of such action.

The essay currently appears on the website of Homiletic & Pastoral Review (July 21, 2017).
