Pope Calls On Bishops To Revive Christian Faith
Pope Benedict XVI on Sunday called on bishops from around the world to revive the Christian faith among those who have forgotten or abandoned it.

The Church needs a new “missionary dynamic” of lay people and must pay “particular attention (to) baptized people who do not live according to the requirements of the baptism,” he said as 262 bishops wound up a three-week huddle that broached all major issues and crises shaking the 2,000-year-old institution.

Clerics must also apply “new methods, a new language that suits different cultures” in their bid for a “new evangelism,” he said during a closing mass at Saint Peter’s. ...

Harriet Sherwood Religion wrote:
Francis’s reception in Santiago has been much more low key than he is used to. The focus of critics’ anger is the appointment by the pope of Juan Barros Madrid as bishop of Osorno in southern Chile in 2015. The new bishop is accused of covering up the activities of a notorious sex abuser in the church, Father Fernando Karadima, in the 1980s and 90s.

Karadima, a powerful, well-connected priest, was found guilty by a Vatican internal inquiry of sexual and psychological abuse in 2011, 27 years after the first complaints about him were made. He was forced to retire, and sentenced to a lifetime of “penance and prayer”.

The pope, ... has encountered an atmosphere of distrust in the church, which has lost moral authority because of abuse scandals and clerical elitism.

It will probably be a depressing end for the Australian Royal Commission if Ireland is any example.
Lisa Miller wrote:
Ireland is still debating the scandal of child abuse in the Catholic Church, eight years after a commission of inquiry into the matter delivered its groundbreaking report....

Mr Flynn, who is now a Dublin city councillor, said it was a flawed process and he was pessimistic about the impact of the Australian inquiry.

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in Australia is due to hand down its final report on December 15.

"So what will happen in Australia is that there'll be mock shock, they'll print out the report, they'll find things we already knew but there will be no justice delivered," Mr Flynn said....

Getting the Catholic Church to act responsibly in Australia is doubted by the following person,
Elise Scott wrote:
Child sexual abuse survivor Damian De Marco is calling for the Catholic Church to be banned from operating Australian schools unless it agrees to report abuse revealed during confession....

He fears politicians will not act on the commission's toughest recommendations, concerned allegiances to religious institutions will create a conflict.

"How can we continue with the knowledge that they've been running a secret judicial system hidden from our society, trafficking paedophiles from place to place ... allowing more and more children over and over again to be abused?" he said....

I caught some news announcements about him tonight - - though it was daytime in Australia, so I went to the Australian Broadcasting Company's website and I only found something of interest for today but due to and incorrect dating I found an article about 4 years ago where he was interviewed. It was highly informing and there is a transcript with it. Just tap on the word transcript to see it. Pell admits coverup.

Professor Des Cahill and Dr Peter Wilkinson wrote:
Priest and religious predators have benefited from easy access to children in parishes and schools, particularly those living in one-priest presbyteries and with access to a car. The risk was especially high in countries like Australia and Ireland which historically had a large number of orphanages and residential schools.

The risk of predation is highest in residential settings. That risk continues today, particularly in India and Italy, which have a significant proportion of the Church’s remaining 9,500 orphanages.

Pope Pius X’s 1910 decision to lower the age at which children make their first confession to seven years indirectly contributed to putting more children at risk.

Popes and bishops created a culture of secrecy, leading to a series of gross failures in transparency, accountability, openness and trust as they endeavoured to protect the Church’s reputation as an all-holy institution above all else, even at the expense of children’s safety.

Always look at, Abuse by Priests besides Abuse Tracker.

I actually found the following article, to Australians, no I'm beating up on the USA this time, because Abuse tracker pointed out a Catholic article complaining about it--probably didn't have enough abuse cases?

In May 2003, Thomas O’Brien, then bishop of the Diocese of Phoenix, admitted to sheltering at least 50 priests accused of sexual abuse, often shuffling them around to parishes across the state.

I should look at the percentage of the Australian population that is Romist and Anglican. Too high for it to be a garden of Eden (especially having the 10 deadliest snakes scattered throughout the land and some of the deadliest churches as mentioned above

Because of another thread, I had another chance to look at Abuse by Priests! with Abuse Tracker. Abuse Tracker was overflowing with examples of evil of the Romish Church For example,
Paul Kennedy wrote:
In public, the Catholic Church has made promises of compassion to survivors of child sexual assault for decades.

Privately, however, it empowered lawyers to "strenuously" defend every Common Law claim brought against the institution.

"The way the church is treating us now is actually adding to the abuse we suffered when we were kids," a survivor confided.

The church has built a ruthless reputation for its range of legal tactics, from stonewalling to counter-attack.

--The Catholic Church's words ring hollow in light of merciless legal tactics

There are quite a few useful links in this file such as, the Vatican's refusal to release all its secret files. etc.

Keep track of the "fun" things the Romish church is up to, through Abuse by Priests! with Abuse Tracker

Ah, this one even made the BBC.

BBC wrote:
At least 547 young members of the Regensburger Domspatzen boys choir in Germany were subjected to physical and in some instances sexual abuse over a period of 60 years,...

The report accuses 49 members of the Catholic Church of carrying out the abuse between 1945 and the early 1990s.

The alleged perpetrators are unlikely to face criminal charges because of the amount of time that has elapsed.

Among those singled out for criticism in the report was former choirmaster Georg Ratzinger, elder brother of retired Pope Benedict XVI.

Mr Weber said that while Mr Ratzinger, now 93, had no knowledge of sexual abuse, "one can accuse him of looking the other way and failing to intervene".

--Hundreds of German choir boys abused over six decades - report

Just like the NAZIs they should put no time limit on prosecuting these child abusers!

You just can't say enough bad things about the Romish Priesthood

The Pope and the Papacy from which

Charles Spurgeon on Catholic Priests wrote:
It’s very difficult to receive honor and expect it, and yet to keep your eyesight, for men’s eyes gradually grow dull through the smoke of the incense which is burned before them. And when their eyes become dim with self conceit, their own great selves conceal the cross and make them unable to believe the truth.

When a fellow comes forward in all sorts of curious garments and says he’s a priest, the poorest child of God may say, “Stand away and don’t interfere with my office. I am a priest. I know not what you may be. You surely must be a priest of Baal. The priesthood belongs to all the saints. They sometimes call you laity, but the Holy Ghost says of all the saints, “you are God’s klēros.” You are God’s clergy. Every child of God is a clergyman or a clergywoman....

Lisa Millar wrote:
The very fact Greg Burke — a former Fox News correspondent and now Papal spin doctor — was standing alongside him [Pell] was significant in itself.

This was the Vatican saying very deliberately: We are standing by our man.

They could have added: For now.

The charging of Pell has created two significant problems, the first being the absence of someone in a key Vatican role.

But the other was amplified by Guardian reporter Stephanie Kirchgaessner, who was the only voice to call out at the end of the Pell media appearance.

"What about the victims?" she asked....

This Pope wants to be seen to be tough on allegations against those accused of committing abuse but he has critics who say he hasn't done enough. And this case will bring the focus back to what is or what isn't being done....

Only two important groups stand in the way of strengthening legislation against child sex abusers in New York State: the Roman Catholic Church and its pipsqueak partner, Agudath Israel of America (aka Agudah).

Both groups decry sexual immorality, preach protection of the weak, and rhapsodize about their children. Yet they both have long, ugly histories of helping their molesters escape prosecution and financial reparations.

There are about 50 priests in the Brooklyn Eparchy, which covers Maronite churches along the East Coast from Maine to Florida, and they all know each other. Within the Catholic Church there are individual churches, or rites, that may have differing local customs but all pledge to be in communion with the pope in Rome. The Maronite church is one such rite, with a history in the eastern regions of the world, while the Roman Catholic rite includes most in the western world.
