Pope Francis May Be Backsliding on Pedophile Crackdown, Catholic Official Says
Australia’s Truth Justice and Healing Council head says Vatican establishment determined to maintain status quo
The Pope may be retreating from his crackdown on pedophile priests as Vatican bureaucrats do all they can to undermine reform efforts, a senior Australian Catholic official has warned.
The Catholic Church in Australia could end up as a “marginalized rump” unless there is real change to an institutional culture hell-bent on self-protection and self-preservation, the chief executive of the church’s Truth Justice and Healing Council, Francis Sullivan, has said.
