Letter to the People of God

Pope Francis has sent a "Letter to the People of God", August 20, 2018, in the wake of the findings of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report. 'It is essential that we, as a Church, be able to acknowledge and condemn, with sorrow and shame, the atrocities perpetrated by consecrated persons, clerics, and all those entrusted with the mission of watching over and caring for those most vulnerable'.   Here is a link to the Pope's letter: www.vaticannews.va/en/pope/news/2018-08/pope-francis-letter-people-of-god-sexual-abuse.html
