Pope summons bishops for February abuse prevention summit

Pope Francis arrives to lead the Wednesday general audience in Saint Peter's square at the Vatican Pope summons bishops for February abuse prevention summit
Patty Aguilar | 12 September, 2018, 23:26

The six present for the September meeting were: Cardinals Pietro Parolin, Vatican secretary of state; Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga of Tegucigalpa, Honduras; Sean P. O'Malley of Boston; Oswald Gracias of Mumbai, India; Reinhard Marx of Munich and Freising, Germany; and Giuseppe Bertello, president of the commission governing Vatican City State.

Wuerl submitted his resignation three years ago, but stayed on working at the Vatican's request.

"Cardinal Wuerl did not act with moral courage to remove predator priests from public ministry".

In a letter, Wuerl wrote - at issue is how to begin effectively a new level of healing to survivors who have suffered so much and the faithful.

"Our discernment here, I believe, has indicated the way forward to bring healing and a new beginning at the service of this Church".

Pope Francis is summoning the presidents of every bishops conference around the world for a February summit to discuss preventing clergy sex abuse and protecting children - evidence that he realizes the scandal is global and that inaction threatens to undermine his legacy.

Since the report was unveiled, a prominent deacon at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle in Washington said he would refuse to participate in the Mass alongside the cardinal.

American church officials had said allegations that Mr. McCarrick had sexually abused a 16-year-old boy nearly 50 years ago were credible and substantiated.

The archbishop of of Washington, D.C., Cardinal Donald Wuerl, who has faced calls to step down over his handling of sexual abuse cases while serving as bishop of Pittsburgh, said in letter to priests that he will soon go to Rome to meet with Pope Francis to discuss his possible resignation.

DiNardo has said he wants Francis to authorize a full Vatican investigation of ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, who was removed as cardinal in July following a credible accusation that he groped a teenager.

Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, the president of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, will attend the meeting after saying last month he was eager to meet the pope following the scandal.

Two of the members of the current C-9, Australian Cardinal George Pell and Chilean Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz Ossa, are under a cloud for allegations related to church sexual abuse scandals in their countries.

DiNardo has also said recent claims of cover-up of McCarrick's misconduct - including against top Vatican officials and the pope himself - deserve answers. Also involved are two officials from the United States conference, Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez and Monsignor Brian Bransfield, according to a Vatican statement.
