Faithful Revolution

This chapter describes the second major gathering of VOTF, where the movement asserts its place as a voice for Catholic laity in the absence of existing structures for participation in church decision making. It reflects on the crisis of child sexual abuse by clergy made public in 2002, noting the institutional changes and movement successes that have occurred since that time due in part to the work of VOTF. Also considered are cultural changes occurring along individual, discursive, and larger cultural levels, as well as movement-related changes in the very meaning of a Catholic identity.

Keywords:   Voice of the Faithful, laity, sexual abuse, cultural change, Catholic identity, movement success
