Description
Does the Church have a role in a multi-cultural, multi-faith, postmodern society? The disillusioned have already left the Church in large numbers, and surely those who stay do not question? Young people, in particular, have found that their concerns for peace, ecology, justice and meaningful participation are better met outside than in the Church.

Against the background of the excommunication of Sri Lankan theologian Tissa Balasuirya, Mary Grey argues that there is a wellspring of hope that a prophetic Church can rise from the ashes of despair, as a coalition of many radical groups of Roman Catholics debated that we are Church, taking with seriousness the intuition of the second Vatican Council that the Pilgrim people of God, the baptised community of faithful, do constitute the pulsating heart of the community of discipleship.
