Anthony Foster RIP

Anthony Foster RIP

Anthony Foster, talks to the press after abuse survivors met Cardinal George Pell in the Hotel Quirinale, Rome, after Pell gave evidence to the The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. Picture by David Mirzoeff /i-ImagesSource:Supplied
Every Catholic parish bulletin should carry this sad news. Anthony Foster was a man of faith, integrity and commitment who called the Church out of dishonesty. His story witnessed to truth telling in a way the George Cardinal Pell failed to grasp.
Anthony Foster called a powerful institution to face its sin in ways that will haunt the hierarchy into the future. His name deserves to be acknowledged in Australian Church History as a voice for the abused, a challenge to clericalism and a witness to the Gospel call to conversion.
 
Rest in peace good and faithful servant
