Cardinal Seán O’Malley, OFM Cap., President of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors, together with all the Commission Members, issued today the following statement on the obligation to report suspected sexual abuse to civil authorities:

“As Pope Francis has so clearly stated: ‘The crimes and sins of the sexual abuse of children must not be kept secret for any longer. I pledge the zealous vigilance of the Church to protect children and the promise of accountability for all’ (27 September 2015).  We, the President and the Members of the Commission, wish to affirm that our obligations under civil law must certainly be followed, but even beyond these civil requirements, we all have a moral and ethical responsibility to report suspected abuse to the civil authorities who are charged with protecting our society.”

Cardinal O’Malley’s statement continued, “In the United States, our Bishops’ Charter clearly states the obligation that all dioceses/eparchies and personnel report suspected abuse to the public authorities.  Every year at our November meeting, at a training session for new Bishops, this obligation is reaffirmed, and every other February the Conference runs a second training program for new Bishops which also clearly and explicitly includes this obligation.  As the Holy Father's advisory commission for the protection of minors, we recently shared with Pope Francis an overview of the Commission’s extensive education efforts in local Churches over the past two years and reiterated the Members’ willingness to provide this material at courses offered in Rome, including to the annual training program for new bishops and to the offices of the Roman Curia for their use in their own child protection efforts.”

*  let op!  Hoewel de mededelingen in dit bericht nogal voor de hand ligt,  de bron is dat voor alsnog voor mij in ieder geval niet ! 
En dat betekent dus dat best mogelijk is dat dit gierende lulkoek is. 
Maar op dit moment, of beter: al sinds een aantal dagen.  gebeurt er zoveel en zo rap, maar bovenal ook met gebruik van allerlei  niet zomaar betrouwbare bronnen.  
Gierende lulkoek? 
Best mogelijk
Onderdeel van de festiviteiten rond de paus en de patriarch die besloten dat ze na 1000 jaar best samen kunnen gaan wandelen?  Zou best kunnen. 

Gierende lulkoek omdat er heel veel mensen heel erg kwaad (of doodziek van zijn) : dát is in ieder geval zeker. 

En verder: 

Mocht je vanavond bevallen dan zou ik nog maar effe wachten met ermee richting rk doopvont rennen - zelfs wanneer je dat alleen maar doet om het nieuwe urm ooit op een rk school te krijgen  - en  je eerst maar eens even tegoed doen aan een beschuitje of 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 

En ervan genieten. Dáar heeft net als jij dat kind/ die kinderen  in ieder geval vele malen meer aan!!

"As you know, there were and there are many people prompt to denounce and to condemn, but there were and there are few to respond proactively to facts which are not only sins but crimes because the wounds caused by such acts run deep."


"Only a Church able to shelter the faces of men and women who knock on her doors will be able to speak to them of God.  If we do not know how to decipher their sufferings, if we do not come to understand their needs, then we can offer them nothing."
