Wednesday, September 5, 2018
53 Minutes 21 Seconds
Professor Michael Higgins

Distinguished Professor of Catholic Thought at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut, Dr. Higgins discusses the latest developments in clergy sex abuse and cover-up, including the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report, Cardinal McCarrick’s resignation, and allegations made by Archbishop Vigano against Pope Francis . In our time together, Higgins argues that the "demolition" of the seminary system is the "kind of radical change the Catholic Church needs if it is to tackle the systemic evil that is clericalism," which is "the root cause of our institutional pathology." Take Action: Urge our bishops to overhaul seminaries.
