Speaking at Veritas 2018 on Saturday 7 July, Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB called on youth to “go and rebuild the Church”.
Taking the words of Pope Francis, Archbishop Costelloe asked young people to stand by the Church despite its “shocking failures of some bishops, priests, religious and other Church personnel have been laid bare for everyone to see”.
“The first [response] would be to walk away, perhaps in disgust, perhaps in sorrow, perhaps in confusion, and to seek to live our lives apart from the Church.
