Product description
Sacred Silence is a book about failed leadership in the Catholic Church. Donald Cozzens looks at various changes and the scandal gripping the Church and offers a historical overview of our church leadership. He explains how the misplaced loyalties of those in leadership positions created the current crisis. Cozzens clarifies why bishops and Church authorities think the way they do and why the ecclesiastical system might be the real villain in the abuse scandal. With compassion and understanding Cozzens answers the why of the present and past leadership failures and proposes a new direction.

Product Reviews

"Donald Cozzens thoughtfully and courageously explores the underpinnings of the current and continuing crisis of the abuse of power riddling the Catholic Church. The issues are explored with stark clarity and genuine sensitivity. His book paves a path to authentic honest dialogue, which is the only way that will lead to personal, social, and ecclesial transformation." -- The Catholic Journalist. "If the Catholic Church is to regain the credibility it has lost through recent scandals, the two subject of authority and sex are in need of truly serious and painfully honest attention. Donald Cozzens asks many of the questions of authority and sex are in need of truly serious and painfully honest attention. Donald Cozzens asks many of the questions that must be faced in confronting these two issues." -- Bishop Geoffrey Robinson, Chairman of Australian Bishops Committee for Professional Standards.
