Anthony Foster RIP.
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
