Book: Meditation on the scandals in the Church (France)

Philippe de Roux has just published "Guérir de la colère et du découragement - Méditation face aux scandales de l'Eglise Catholique" ("Healing anger and discouragement - A meditation on the scandals of the Catholic Church"), published by Bayard. This publication is the fruit of a collective work, as the author has put together dialogues with a number of people, including Alberto Toutin sscc.

The revelations of abuses and scandals linked to the Church follow one after the other. Faced with the extent of the dysfunction, Christians oscillate between sadness, discouragement and anger. Philippe de Roux - a business executive and politician - has felt these emotions keenly: how to overcome them, how to get out of the impasse and repair what can still be repaired? This is what the author presents and proposes: a collective journey of truth and healing, combining lucidity and hope, trust and freedom, with our eyes fixed on Jesus. The Good News of Christ is liberating and urgent for our time. It invites all Catholics to overcome their anger and embrace a form of radicalism, in prayer and in action.

At a time when many Christians are disoriented, this unrestrained spiritual journey aims to open ways to keep hope alive and encourages them to participate together in God's work on earth.
