Even in the worst of times — such as the clerical abuse crisis — Catholics can still discern the voice of their true Shepherd.

In this episode of Inside CatholicPhilly.com, Meghan Cokeley of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia shares with producer Gina Christian how the “sensus fidei” (the sense of faith) can guide laity who are living out their baptismal vows.

Although church leaders can and do fail, Christ never abandons the flock for which he gave his very life.

Meghan Cokeley will present “The Role of the Laity in a Time of Crisis” at area parishes throughout the fall. For a complete list of dates, times and locations, visit http://www.phillyevang.org/events/.
