In Spirit and Truth Reading Roundup: July 2023 Edition
Once again, it’s time for my monthly collection of news and commentary about the twin crises of abuse and institutional betrayal in the Catholic Church.
The July edition is coming to you a day late, because I’ve spent much of the past month focused on Awake’s first weekend retreat for abuse survivors; I’m just now finding time to catch up on the news. (The retreat was amazing, by the way. If you’re interested, you can read all about it here: “I Will Never Forget This Weekend.” Transformative Experiences at Awake’s First Retreat for Abuse Survivors.)
As always, if you only have time to read a few pieces this month, I recommend you start with those in bold below. 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.
