About this title

Synopsis:

Sacred Silence is a book about failed leadership in the Catholic Church. Donald Cozzens looks at various challenges and the scandal gripping the Church and offers an 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.

Chapters in Part One: Masks of Denial are "Sacred Silence," and “Forms of Denial.” Chapters in Part Two: Faces of Denial are “Sacred Oaths, Sacred Promises,” “Voices of Women,” “Religious Life and the Priesthood,” “Abuse of Our Children,” “Clerical Culture,” “Gay Men in the Priesthood,” and “Ministry and Leadership.” The chapter in Part Three: Beyond Denial is “Sacred Silence, Sacred Speech.”

About the Author:

Donald Cozzens--priest, writer, and lecturer--teaches in the religious studies department at John Carroll University. He is the award-winning and best-selling author of The Changing Face of the Priesthood and Sacred Silence: Denial and the Crisis in the Church.
