Abstract: The sexual abuse crisis has shredded the integrity of the Catholic Church’s life and ministry. The members of the Catholic community share a longing for a more authentic church, but disagree about the means to achieve this goal. What is the role of theologians in this context? This presentation links theology and the promotion of hope. If focuses on hope as the product of honest acceptance of the church’s brokenness and creative interpretation of the church’s own resources.
