Vatican Sets Up Abuse Help Centre

The BBC reports:

 

The Vatican is to set up a new e-learning centre to help safeguard children and victims of sexual abuse by clergy, as part of its efforts to deal with damaging scandals.

The Roman Catholic Church is preparing for a major conference on abuse to take place next February in Rome.

The Vatican has told bishops to come up with guidelines to combat abuse, in line with local laws.

The Catholic Church has been rocked by scandals of sexual abuse by priests.

The centre will offer guidance to those who have to respond to abuse cases, as well as providing information for victims. Its advice will be available in German, English, French, Spanish and Italian.

“The e-learning centre will work with medical institutions and universities to develop a constant response to the problems of sexual abuse,” said Monsignor Klaus Peter Franzl of the archdiocese of Munich, according to the Reuters news agency.

One thought on “Vatican Sets Up Abuse Help Centre

  1. Who would have ever thought, at least in my younger days, that the RCC was going to have a crisis of moral failure, and especially in their priesthood as to sexual ethics and behavior! But it is here centre stage! This is certainly one of the eschatological signs! It must be, as the world is also plagued so by Radical Islam! God gives the analogy of a woman in labor, and the birth pains.. this struggle has been going on since as a war in heaven between the forces of Satan and Michael (Rev. 12:7-9), and this only gets worse during the great tribulation, which comes upon the faithful and Jewish Remnant itself. Certainly we await for God finally and forever to bruise Satan under our feet! (Rom.16:20) Satan is defeated now, but he has not yet been removed from the place of battle. So we sojourn here In Christ, with Jesus our Victor…”But thanks be to God, which gives us the victory (spiritual) through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Cor. 15:57)
