This story from the Catholic News Services is for all intents and purposes a pornographic fantasy: The church sees progress where there is none. It sees cooperation where there is none. It sees people in the pews who are nothing more than ghosts.
The church does not yet understand that it cannot heal, it cannot recover until it provides something heretofore missing: JUSTICE. Until Justice is served the church is dead in the water – a festering lump of discarded physical protein, a scab.
