- Jesuit theologian Gerry O'Hanlon reflects on the current crisis in the Catholic Church in Ireland ... and worldwide. He discusses how the vision of Church as People of God in the Second Vatican Council failed to be implemented, due to lack of appropriate collegial structures. He argues that we need to deepen this vision for today, and to embody it in new structures which will allow the full participation of lay people, and in particular of women. He proposes the need for a National Assembly of the Catholic Church in Ireland, and ultimately for another worldwide Ecumenical Council. -- back cover.
