Pope asks for prayers for sex abuse summit at Vatican

Pope Francis on Sunday asked for prayers for this week’s sex abuse summit at the Vatican. Calling sex abuse of minors ’an urgent challenge of our time’, Francis told pilgrims and other visitors Sunday in St. Peter’s Square that beginning Thursday, the heads of episcopal conferences worldwide will meet to discuss the matter.

Imagine how disappointed the priests were when they found out the "sex abuse summit" was about solving sex abuse.

The arrogance is implying that only God can do something about it. No, it's a man-made problem, the very men responsible for it have to deal with it; not God. The Pope, of all people, has the authority to clean house, and then cooperate with authorities in investigating the alleged crimes. Don't deflect this shit on God.

The Catholic Church needs reformation. No pope, no hierarchy, no corruption.

The church needs to dump the attitude that it is above secular laws and law enforcement.

How about prayers for the survivors? Or a reformative training program for priests? Or a fast tracked way to report such allegations against kids? Excommunication of the predators? Something.
