Pope Francis: Act Decisively Against Sexual Abuse / Vatican Information Service

Today, Pope Francis met with Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Mueller, prefect of the Congragation for the Doctrine of the Faith. This is the Vatican Information Service’s brief report of that meeting:

A communique released by that dicastery reads that, during the course of the audience, various issues pertaining to the Congregation were discussed. In particular, the Holy Father recommended that the Congregation, continuing along the lines set by Benedict XVI, act decisively with regard to cases of sexual abuse, first of all by promoting measures for the protection of minors, as well as in offering assistance to those who have suffered abuse, carrying out due proceedings against the guilty, and in the commitment of bishops’ conferences to formulate and implement the necessary directives in this area that is so important for the Church’s witness and credibility. The Holy Father assured that victims of abuse are present in a particular way in his prayers for those who are suffering.”
