There is a crisis of conscience and conduct in the Church.
That's the view of Poet Seamus Heaney.
The Derry born Nobel Laureate says the lay church will have to come more to the fore in the future, but significant change, particularly in areas such as education, will be slower than is hoped for.
Dr. Heaney says the Catholic Church must find its roots again.
He suggested there's bound to be more openness and more accountability, but said he is uneasy about that kind of business-model language, saying he would prefer trust and honesty.
