about

Individual and collective grief, if not expressed in mourning rituals, can suffocate creativity and paralyze individuals as well as institutions. In this timely work, theologian, educator, and facilitator Gerald A. Arbuckle argues that today, the emergence of Pope Francis as ritual leader in the Church has allowed suppressed grief to be articulated in a variety of ways, and the Church is now experiencing new energy, and opening up to necessary new methods of rebirth and renewal.

From that premise, Arbuckle develops a cultural-anthropological model of institutional change. He applies this model to what has been happening in the Church since Vatican II, particularly in those institutions and religious expressions that found flower after the Council but have faced different realities in the decades since.

For pastoral and organizational leaders, and all those involved in Church leadership, this book offers clarity and hope.
