In Spirit and Truth Reading Roundup: August 2023 Edition
Here’s the latest news and commentary about the twin crises of abuse and institutional betrayal in the Catholic Church, including some powerful investigative reporting out of New Orleans and significant developments in several U.S. states.
As always, if you only have time to read a few pieces this month, I recommend you start with those in bold below. Don’t miss the powerful survivor reflection at the bottom of this list.
Note that I highlight pieces from a variety of sources and perspectives, and inclusion here does not mean that I agree with everything in a given article.
News and Investigative Reporting from New Orleans
New York: Retired Albany bishop Hubbard, accused of covering up and committing abuse, has died + Scharfenberger funeral homily: Hubbard 'not uncontroversial' bishop 'at times' + Former Bishop Hubbard’s family condemns Scharfenberger eulogy at funeral
