Pope Francis:

I believe I speak for all child sex abuse survivors when I say this: your prayers are appreciated, but your actions will be appreciated more. Stop saying that the church must take responsibility for child sexual abuse within its ranks while allowing diocese to spend millions fighting the laws that would make them accountable for their abuse. Stop funding the fight against laws that take sex offenders off the streets. Support the elimination of Statutes of Limitations against child sexual abuse.

 

 

 

The Catholic Church has confirmed it plans to hold a worldwide day of prayer for victims of sexual abuse, as it continues to make efforts to protect vulnerable children.

 Pope Francis announced the proposal following a meeting of the panel he set up to tackle child abuse within the Church and help survivors of past attacks. The Church will also establish an educational website with information and advice.

According to the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors, the day of prayer was suggested by an abuse survivor and could be “one part of the healing process for survivors and the community of believers”, as well as “an important way of consciousness raising in the Church”.
