This week, Dennis Sewell says we must resist schadenfreude over the BBC’s abuse crisis; Stuart Reid prays outside an abortion clinic; Melanie McDonagh urges Catholics to defy groupthink; and Bess Twiston Davies meets the young Catholic choreographer who says he has a vocation to change our ideas about dance.
