THO 3150: Theological and Structural Dimensions of the Crisis of Abuse (3 cr.)

  • A theological exploration of the institutional dimensions of the abuse crisis, including distortions of theology and pastoral practice that foster a false sacralization of ordained priesthood, the culture of clericalism, and perceptions of celibate life. The basis for ecclesiastical reform is a sound theology of ministry, pastoral responsibility, transparency, and accountability to the people of God in a truly synodal Church.
