  • This series of true stories examines some of the issues that have resulted in a need for reconciliation within the Church. In each story the author, the author, Fr Frank Fahey, assumes the voices of the individuals involved, who speak from various perspectives on the issues touched up in this book -
    unmarried mothers and orphan children, sex abuse and scandals, women and priests who feel aggrieved, people hurt and let down by the Church, doctrinal differences and reconciliation.

    Read the lament of the fallen woman who recounts how she was denounced from the altar; the reply of the priest who followed his bishops instructions in denouncing her; and the reasoning of the bishop in considering that a preventative measure against women becoming pregnant out of wedlock, at a time when there were no social services, was to denounce them from the altar. Or read the angry words of the victim of sex abuse, and the reply of his abuser.

    Each of these accounts shows the affect that the Church has had on individual lives. The book acknowledges the responsibility of the church to reach out a hand of reconciliation to those whose lives have been adversely affected by people who represent or act in the name of the Church.
