Pope Francis leads conference on sex abuse at Vatican

Catholic priests from across the world have been found guilty of sexually abusing both adults and children and the church is accused of trying to cover many of the crimes up. But on the third day of the Vatican's conference on child abuse on Saturday at least two of the archbishops attending gave out positive messages. "I don't know if something big will happen at the end of this meeting but things are moving forward. I am very happy," said the Archbishop of Luxembourg, Jean-Claude Hollerich. "I sense that there is a commitment to ensure that our children and vulnerable people are safe and we are also committed to high standards in that and to accountability for those standards," the head of the Catholic Church in Ireland, the Archbishop of Armagh Eamon Columba Martin, said. Many of the victims disagree; they say the Church is not doing enough and some of them told painful stories of abuse and cover-up when the conference began on Thursday. Then on Saturday they rallied in a square in Rome and marched to the Vatican to demand change and justice. Some 200 senior Church officials were convened by Pope Francis to confront what he has called the scourge of sexual abuse by the clergy. One of them Sister Veronica Openibo, a Nigerian who has worked in Africa, Europe and the United States, was far from upbeat. "We proclaim the Ten Commandments and parade ourselves as being the custodians of moral standards and values and good behaviour in society. Hypocrites at times? Yes! Why did we keep silent for so long?" she said. She told the pope, sitting near her at the conference, that she admired him because he was "humble enough to change your mind," apologise and take action after he initially defended a Chilean bishop accused of covering up abuse. The bishop later resigned. "How could the clerical Church have kept silent, covering these atrocities? The silence, the carrying of the secrets in the hearts of the perpetrators, the length of the abuses and the constant transfers ...

Littleproud not impressed with Coles offer for milk

The Minister for Agriculture, David Littleproud speaks to the media in Canberra in relation to the wholesale price of milk paid to dairy farmers by supermarkets. The minister is not impressed with the statement from Coles "that it is prepared to act if everyone else does" regarding the milk prices paid by other supermarkets. Woolworths has offered to pay an extra ten cents per litre for milk at the farm gate. "All the supermarkets need to get on the journey and help sustain the industry," Mr Littleproud says.

Good Morning Europe - Vatican prepares for summit on sexual abuse within Catholic Church

Vatican prepares for summit on sexual abuse within Catholic Church

The Vatican is preparing for a summit later this week on the issue of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church. Bishops from around the world will gather on Thursday for a four-day conference, along with Vatican officials, experts and heads of male and female religious orders. The theme of the meeting is the "prevention of abuse of minors and vulnerable adults", and it comes as the 1.3 billion-member Catholic Church tries to eliminate a problem that has plagued the Catholic Church for decades. Church leaders have repeatedly come under fire for their handling of the crisis - often moving priests accused of abuse from parish to parish, instead of turning them over to secular authorities. Pope Francis called the meeting in September 2018, at the suggestion of his closest advisors, saying that he hopes it will be "catechesis", meaning attendees will learn something from it.

Pope demotes two cardinals over sex abuse

Pope demotes two cardinals over sex abuse

Pope Francis has removed two cardinals from his inner circle of advisers over the sex abuse scandals that have rocked the Catholic Church - including his economy minister, one of the most powerful posts in the Vatican. George Pell faces trial over historical child sexual offenses in his native Australia. He appears to still be a minister, even as he's removed as adviser. The Vatican has now confirmed that Pell is taking indefinite leave to defend himself from prosecution. He denies the charges. The other cardinal to depart the pope's circle is linked to Chile's abuse scandal. Francisco Javier Errazuriz is accused by survivors of discrediting victims and not investigating their cases, which he also denies. Chile's sex abuse scandal was on such a scale that all 34 bishops in the country offered to resign. The pope has accepted seven of those resignations so far. He has no plans yet to appoint new advisors.
