Pope Francis on Abuse — A Disappointment / Fr. Thomas Doyle in National Catholic Reporter

A long-time, staunch supporter of clergy sexual abuse survivors, Fr. Thomas Doyle, has presented his response to Pope Francis’ recent comments on clergy sexual abuse in an article today in National Catholic Reporter. Click here to read “Pope Francis on Abuse — A Disappointment.”

Fr. Doyle will facilitate a workshop on surviving clergy sexual abuse called “Survivor Support: Spirituality & Trauma” at the Voice of the Faithful® 2014 Assembly in Hartford, Connecticut, April 5.

A Dominican priest with a doctorate in canon law and five master’s degrees, Fr. Doyle sacrificed a rising career at the Vatican Embassy to become an outspoken advocate for Catholic Church clergy sexual abuse victims. Since 1984, when he became involved with the issue of sexual abuse of children by Catholic clergy, he has become an expert in canonical and pastoral dimensions of this problem and has worked directly with victims, their families, accused priests, bishops and other high-ranking Catholic Church officials.
