About the Author

John Crothers was ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of Sydney in 1985 and has worked in numerous Sydney parishes including Penshurst and Peakhurst, where he was Parish Priest from 2000 to 2016. John is now retired from full-time parish ministry and lives on the NSW south coast, helping out with Sunday masses and other sacramental celebrations both in the Sydney and Wollongong dioceses.

Reviews

This book is equally important for Catholic laity and clergy. Crothers argues that the future lies in clergy and laity collaborating in shaping the future of the church with mutual respect, dialogue and deep listening. Clericalism continues to separate the clergy and laity as it denies the problem, closes off discussion and refuses to dialogue and learn with the whole people of God. Crothers offers many examples of this problem and a marvellous section on how the gospel can inform us on what is wrong, and how we can move forward to a better future. Written in an easy style, it is challenging for all who seek to look honestly at what is happening today in the Catholic church. -- Peter Maher, Sydney priest and editor of The Swag, The National Council of Priests, quarterly magazine
Just like Johns homilies, this book is engaging, challenging and affirming. Every thinkingCatholic laity and clergy should read it. -- Sarah Minns, Co-author of Kaths Miracle and parishioner of St Declans Penshurst
"The best quote Ive ever heard about John Crothers came from a fellow parishioner who was in his late 90s when he said Fr John was put on this earth to be my Parish Priest. A thought shared by many and the ultimate compliment." -- Kevin Greene, Mayor of Georges River Council
"When John Crothers gives a homily the congregation are engaged. In this thought provoking book he has managed to address a series of complex issues in an easy to read format that will not only strike a cord with the laity but hopefully make the Clergy Club listen." -- Kevin Greene, Mayor of Georges River Council
