Interview with the Rev. Kevin O’Brien, S.J., a Jesuit priest and dean of the Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University in California.
Fr. O’Brien and I discuss the Catholic Church’s systemic structure and how the Church has unintentionally created a system that has oppressed vulnerable community members. We also discuss what the Church can to do earn the trust of its members, heal as a system and help those who have survived sexual abuse heal in the wake of oppressive practices.
