A Three-day Meeting in Rome to Do What?

Pope Francis shut down the U.S. bishops’ meeting in November, telling them, do nothing until you hear from me — until you come to Rome, to which all roads lead, when I will have an agenda for you.

Pope Francis will meet on February 21, 2019, with the bishops’ conferences of the world on protecting minors from clergy sexual abuse. But what is the problem they will be addressing? Is the problem pedophilia, homosexuality, rogue clericalism, or all of the above?

A little clarity, please.

Father Hans Zollner, a member of the committee organizing this meeting, told the Vatican News on December 27 that the meeting should produce “a clarification of procedures, which aren’t so clear,” regarding the responsibility and accountability of bishops and religious superiors throughout the entire world.

What’s not to like about clarifying procedures?

More to come . . .
