Subsequent chapters take up the views of the first Latin American pope as well as his critics on specific topics: gender issues, work and business, consumerism, caring for the poor, liturgy, communion for divorced and remarried people, and clergy sex abuse, the church having a long history of clergy sexual misconduct, an unresolved abuse scandal, thousands of victims in need of help, millions of disilusioned Catholics, priests ill-equipped to deal with the pressures of pastoral ministry, bishops who avoided accountability for failed oversight, and recent popes who had only made limited progress in solving the crisis. For Pope Francis, synodality is the key to making progress on all the complex problems. As to the vexing question of clergy sex abuse, there will be no simple, easy, acceptable, complete, definitive slutions. However, the synodal strategy of Frances offers the best opportunity to make meaningful progress at the local level, where the community can work together..
