Were Catholics guilty of aiding and abetting the genocide of indigenous peoples during the colonisation of Australia and New Zealand?

Is saying sorry and paying some compensation for losses suffered to indigenous peoples of both countries enough? What obligations do Catholics now have if a peaceful and harmonious society is to emerge from the tragedy of the past?

In order to answer these and other related questions over the role of the Roman Catholic Church in the colonisation of Australia and New Zealand, Dominic O’Sullivan takes us on a theological, philosophical and political journey from the countries of Europe to the colonies of Australia and New Zealand.
