ACP receives appeal on behalf of Bishops Robinson, Power and Morris
To the priests of Ireland
I am writing from Australia on behalf of Bishops Geoffrey Robinson, Pat Power and Bill Morris.
The three bishops have started a global petition entitled, “For Christ’s Sake, end sexual abuse for good.” It is calling on Pope Francis to hold an ecumenical council of the whole church, inclusive of laity to address the one issue of the causes of sexual abuse in the Church. The rational for the petition and its detail of the petition can be found here. It already has 19,000 signatures and is growing rapidly. The petition can be signed on line.
If you agree with the premise of the petition I ask your organisation to support and promote it in Ireland.
Please do contact me if you have any questions or require additional information or would like to be in contact with the bishops (email firstname.lastname@example.org).
For Bishops Robinson, Power and Morris
