EPISODE SUMMARY

The number of people outside and even inside the Catholic Church who trust the institution is shrinking. When the Church’s management engages in coverups, avoids admitting to bad news, and attacks those who present embarrassing facts its proclamation of the Gospel suffers. People will not believe the truth of the Gospel if its messengers are afraid of the truth of its mundane life. The Church needs honest journalism for the sake of honest evangelization.
