No More Victims, a laity group with the likes of theologian Mary Healey, Ph.D. and broadcaster Al Kresta on its board, has issued a “reader” for both the bishops and the laity detailing what can be done to counter sex abuse of adults and minors in the Church and how the laity should become involved in the solution to these problems.

If Pope Paul VI was alive today, he would have every right to look at the #MeToo movement and say, “I told you so.” And he did – 50 years ago when he issued papal encyclical, Humanae Vitae, which put forth the Church’s teaching on love and marriage and on the use of artificial birth control. Since that time it has been called everything from puritanical to completely out-of-touch. But one thing it’s rarely been called is exactly what it turned out to be – the truth.
