Op hoop van zegen
Wendy Oakes

De rooms-katholieke kerk wordt geplaagd door schandalen. Met name het groeiend aantal meldingen van sexueel misbruik door priesters en andere geestelijken heeft de kerk ernstige imago-schade toegebracht.

De kerk heeft geprobeerd gevallen van kindermisbruik binnenshuis te houden en zelf op te lossen. In het stuk Crimen Sollicitationis, uit 1962 staat hoe om te gaan met deze misdrijven.

Ik heb geprobeerd te begrijpen vanuit welke zienswijze de problemen toen werden aangepakt. Ik ontdekte dat dat niet betekent dat ik ook begrip heb voor de daders en het instituut dat de daders en zichzelf probeerde te beschermen tegen deze aantasting van binnenuit.

Ik heb geworsteld met de spanning tussen enerzijds de eigen verantwoordelijkheid van elke priester en anderzijds zijn levenslange verbondenheid met de kerk door zijn functie.

En hoe geestelijkheid zich verhoudt tot de lichamelijkheid van de misdrijven, de vleselijkheid van de zonde.
