Archbishop Gomez: A crisis of personal responsibility

Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles responded to the Vatican’s summit on abuse by stressing the need for a renewal of fidelity within the entire Catholic Church. “This crisis in the Church is an issue of accountability and transparency. But, most importantly, at its heart, this is a crisis of personal fidelity,” he said. “It is a crisis of not following Jesus Christ and not living the way he teaches us to live.”
