How you can work to build unity in Australian Catholic churches?


The Catholic churches of Australia are already unified, and there is little dissent on matters of doctrine. The main problems facing the Church today are the emergence of evidence of widespread paedophilia and, much worse, the willingness of the hierarchy to cover up these crimes. Unfortunately, the apparent tendency of bishops and archbishops to suppress information and to protect their priests and religious is evidence of "too much" unity, when morality and integrity cry out for full and open reporting of suspected crimes to the civil authorities.
