VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope summons heads of all bishops conferences around world for February summit on preventing clergy sex abuse.

Po pe summons heads of all bishops conferences around world for February summit on preventing clergy sex abuse


Francis' key cardinal advisers announced the decision Wednesday, as the latest chapter in the Catholic Church's long-running sex abuse and cover-up scandal has thrown Francis' papacy into crisis.

The Feb. 21-24 meeting is believed to be the first of its kind and signals a realization at the highest levels of the church that clergy sex abuse is a global problem and not restricted to the Anglo-Saxon world, as many church leaders have long insisted.

Francis' papacy has been jolted by accusations he rehabilitated a top American cardinal from sanctions imposed by Pope Benedict XVI for having molested and harassed adult seminarians.


About time the Pope made a move about these scandals, I hope this can change some things in the catholic church. I won't hold my breath for the pedophiles to be expose because this is one of the most secretive conspiracies we have, but at least he's doing something about it. Seems so.

Not much details yet about the meeting other than it's taking place in February, 2019.

Will update as more information come to light.

For some odd reason, as I read this post, this comes to mind:




The third part of the secret revealed at the Cova da Iria-Fátima, on 13 July 1917.
I write in obedience to you, my God, who command me to do so through his Excellency the Bishop of Leiria and through your Most Holy Mother and mine.
After the two parts which I have already explained, at the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: 'Penance, Penance, Penance!'. And we saw in an immense light that is God: 'something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it' a Bishop dressed in White 'we had the impression that it was the Holy Father'. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God.

Off with their heads!
“Pope summons for only the heads of his bishops after underage sex scandal”

I hope they figure out the best method of prevention is to stop protecting their corrupted and perverted brothers of the cloth.

So a meeting of the top pedophiles and the people who have been protecting them and covering up their crimes for decades. I bet this is more about workshopping ways not to get caught and better ways to cover it up.

They haven’t cared about the victims for DECADES, what makes people think they all the sudden care now? All they care about is the churches reputation.

Tear down their corrupt institution brick by brick and force them to build their own prisons from the ruin.

a good preventative measure would be to punish and prosecute those pedophiles according to state laws and not Vatican laws.

if you attached one of those pedos with each limbs attached to 4 horses all pulling in different directions, I bet that would curb the abuse suffered by children. make a clear example out of one of those broken waste of oxygen and I bet there would be a steep decline in abuse cases.

I won't point fingers and say the Pope knew about the abuses and was complicit to it, he should be considered innocent until proven guilty.

But I'm sure some of these high level bishops knew or participated in the abuses, no way you can keep this under the radar for so long if you don't have high level authorities involved.

Let's wait to see what happens. Crossing fingers for some breakdown on the civilization and the fall of the Vatican in the meantime.

After seeing this go on for so long, I'll be surprised if anything real comes of it.

We can always hope. They would have to kick 30% of priests out of the church at this point. Not just the offenders but also those who cover it up. Otherwise it will just go back to business as usual. Do you believe they will do this?

Yea, well from what I've read, it is worse than that. They'd have to throw out 30% of the Bishops and Cardinals as well. This corruption goes to the very top and as we all know, a fish rots from the head.

I read this morning that the pope equated whistleblowers with Satan. Is that true?

Just let the buggers marry for goodness sake! Humans need sex...we're incredibly sexual beings ( so I'm told lol) and those that are denied it will find a way to get it, just look at prisons etc. We simply are naturally celibate and it takes a strong person to remain that way without slipping back to our basic instinct to procreate. Blame the creator (and probably misinterpretation of scriptures too)

In the past there were priests that went to prostitutes or nuns or whatever. The problems we have now really started around the time of Vatican II. The church was seriously changed by communists and masons assuming high offices. Then a huge influx of homosexuals until they became a significant voting bloc in the Vatican. They got their friends in and eventually morphed into the pedophiles we see today. Basically, people that wanted to overthrow the church did so. There has been much written about this and even a lot of videos on you tube.

They dont want to prevent homo child rape, it obvious a part of their belief system as the Whore of Babyl. They want to avoid public attention. They still want to sacrifice the innocent to their god Lucifer. And they eventually want people to accept it,like they did before Rome went away. (and then was again).

Remember this is the same organization who says to let the robber rob, let the rapist rape, and if you dont put out blankets and food for the border crossers we'll help them sue you.

Just for a general comment on the issue of the church raping children:

It obviously shows that the whole religion is psychologically sick.

Molesting / raping children is not something that normal people would even WANT to do.

These priests could find consenting adults to sleep with. Even prostitutes (adults).

In NY the legal age is 17, meaning that everyone in NY is allowed to sleep with 11th graders. How anyone feels a need to go younger than that, is just sick. Especially talking about very young kids.

People blame celibacy (or homosexuality) but that is not the reason. They could pretend to be celibate and go bang consenting adults in their private lives.

I don't know why exactly, but it's clear that the religion is mentally ill in some very fundamental way.
