The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Pope Francis instituted a day of prayer for the victims of sexual abuse

2016-09-12

Pope Francis has asked the Episcopal Conferences to choose a day to pray for the victims of sexual abuse.

The initiative was announced by the Vatican's Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors created by the pope in March 2014. This welcomed the proposal made by a person who suffered abuse in their infancy.

The Commission is concentrating its efforts to sensitize local churches against this drama. Over recent months, its members have traveled the world giving courses to bishops, priests, and  religious on how to prevent abuse and what guidelines to follow before the appearance of a new case.

The Commission also announced that in the coming months they will create their own website and present new initiatives to the pope for consideration.
