Overview
-

As the papal conclave that was to choose Pope Francis was being called, a cardinal of the Catholic Church was exposed and took a monumental fall from grace. Since then, many more high-profile Catholic clerics have been confronted. One of four whistle blowers, former priest Brian Devlin relates what it took to uncover the sexual hypocrisy of Cardinal Keith O’Brien in this previously untold inside story. Making the effort to write not from a place of anger and hurt, he presents Cardinal Sin as an opportunity for the global Church to learn and change. With far-reaching insights, the book offers genuine lessons to help avoid future horror stories involving Catholic leaders. The author asks the hard questions, analyzes the harsh responses of the Catholic hierarchy, and provides ways the Church can heal and regain the trust of its faithful. Cardinal Sin: Challenging Power Abuse in the Catholic Church is a critical work for understanding how the Catholic Church does and should react when its senior figures are challenged.
