In his presentation Kevin adopts the role of a doctor/physician rather than a judge. His goal is to help a critically ill patient, namely the Catholic church, by providing a diagnosis that not only looks at the symptoms but tries to get to the cause of the illness and recommend a treatment which hopefully will make a positive contribution to the patient’s recovery.
“I undertake this reflection because I care about the future of the Catholic Church. The condition of the ecclesial patient can best be described as serious and this gives rise to concern. This is not a time for platitudes and reassurance, telling the patient that he/she is looking fine and will be back to robust health as soon as the antibiotics kick in. ………… if we care about our Church we need to acknowledge the terminal state of the patient.”
