2010-04-12

The prosecutor chosen by the pope to bring legal action against priests who commit sexual abuse says they are working to make things faster.

Additionally, he declared war on the ‘culture of silence’ and recalls Benedict XVI’s letter to Irish Catholics, where the pope denounced those who mistakably fail to report clergy for fear of ruining the good name of the Church.
