"John has been proactive in the area of Australian survivors of abuse suffered in religious institutions. He is himself a survivor of abuse in a religious institution as a child and now devotes time and energy to public education and awareness and more importantly the prevention of abuse of children in any and all settings. He is well known in the survivor community and highly respected for his research in this area. Australia as a nation has suffered greatly at the hands of organizations that failed in their duty of care towards young persons.

His understanding of trauma is immense and in this very murky area to date, he is a beacon of informed knowledge and hope.".

Morris was the head of the bishops conference and was the go to person in the country for survivors of childhood sexual abuse by Catholic clergy and yet I was never able to get a time or a conversation with the bishop. I did get conversations or connection with a number of Catholic organisations with varying degrees of weirdness.
