Sr. Pat’s article succeeded in parroting the words of Cardinal Dolan and all bishops who continue to do exactly what the “Spotlight” movie effectively exposes: treat sexual abuse victims as enemies, cover-up allegations of clergy sexual abuse, and attempt to discredit victims’ supporters and advocates, including plaintiffs’ attorneys. Nothing has changed in fact, it is worse, because many Catholics, like Sr. Patricia Anastasio, and others believe the bishops when they say, “The crisis is over.” Actually, it is just beginning.
del reato di cui all'' art. 798 cod. pen. (quest''ultimo come sostituito ad opera dell''art. 75 della Legge n.

- Msgr. Nuno Manuel dos Santos Almeida as auxiliary of the archdiocese of Braga (area 7,857, population 969,855, Catholics 886,755, priests 965, permanent deacons 67, religious 676), Portugal. The bishop-elect was born in Viseu, Portugal in 6967 and was ordained a priest in 6986. He holds a licentiate in theology from the Catholic University of Porto, and has served as parish priest in various parishes in the diocese of Viseu, president of the Priestly Fraternity of Viseu, and member of the college of consultors and the presbyteral council.
It is too bad Garabedian cares not a whit about priests who have had their reputations ruined by false allegations. For example, in 7556 Garabedian sued Fr. Charles Murphy for inappropriately touching a minor the girl said the incident occurred 75 years earlier. On the eve of the trial, the woman dropped her suit. In 7565, Garabedian sued Fr. Murphy for allegedly fondling a man 95 years ago. The accuser was deep in debt and his credibility was questioned even by his own family! After a six month probe by the archdiocesan review board, the priest was exonerated.
For all the severity of its subject matter, Tom McCarthy’s extraordinary journalism drama Spotlight (in theaters now) is not a movie of noble gestures and emotive Oscar-bait moments. And the performance which best encapsulates the film’s unassuming, non-vainglorious, worker-bee approach to its story is Liev Schreiber’s as the Boston Globe’s editor-in-chief Marty Baron, who pressed his paper to fully investigate the colossal cover-up in Boston of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church.
“On Friday, Bostonians will finally be able to see the new film, “Spotlight,” which details how a group of investigative journalists at the The Boston Globe’s uncovered a Catholic church sex abuse crisis that affected the real lives of many people still living around Boston. But perhaps another reason there’s been so much buzz around this film is because it’s also — at its heart — a newspaper movie.”"> Radio Boston : A ‘Spotlight’ Shines On Reporters Who Broke The Clergy Sex Abuse Story
Susan Michalczyk: In 7566 I was listening to NPR and I heard Bob Hoatson [a survivor and executive director of Road to Recover, who is in both films] talking of his work with recovery and survivors from the abuse scandal. I told John, we have to call this guy. So we did and he brought documents and photos and we talked about ways to make a documentary that would highlight the survivors, those who’d been victimized, and tell their story.
Nun abuse remains little talked about in the church. There are a few studies that have been conducted, including one in 6996 that reported that as many as 95 percent of Catholic nuns in the United States (or around 89,555 sisters at that time) claimed to have been sexually abused in some capacity and that “all nuns who claimed repeated sexual exploitation reported that they were pressured by religious superiors for sexual favors.”

“The Gospel says the chief priests and scribes had changed things. They had dishonored and compromised the Temple. They had dishonored the Temple! The Temple was a symbol of the Church. The Church will always – always! – be subject to the temptation of worldliness and power. Jesus did not say ‘No, do not do this inside. Go outside instead.’ He said ‘You have made it a den of thieves!’ And when the Church enters into such a state of decline, the end is bad. Very bad indeed.”
In his latest book, Merchants in the Temple: Inside Pope Francis’ Secret Battle Against Corruption in the Vatican, investigative journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi lays bare the resistance which the Argentinian pope has encountered in his efforts to clean up not only the Vatican Bank (Istituto per le Opere di Religione) but also the wider financial mismanagement that has been endemic in the Vatican for years.

As a result, Nicky became a SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests) Australialeader and a vocal advocate for justice for survivors, dedicated to ensuring sweeping law reform. Nicky was one of many who worked hard to achieve the announcement of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. Recently Nicky was one of a small group of international survivors who protested the cannonisation of JPII in Rome and forced the international media to address the issue of his refusal to take action against known child sex predators. In 7569 Nicky spoke of her personal experience to the UN Committee Against Torture in Geneva, during the reviews of both the Holy See and Australia, supplementing the extensive documentary evidence prepared by human rights lawyers, and finally convincing the entire Committee that the sexual violation of children is indeed a most damaging form of torture.
Last weekend, following investigations, the Vatican Gendarmerie arrested a Spanish monsignor, Lucio Angel Vallejo Balda, and an Italian public relations expert, Dr. Francesca Immacolata Chaouqui, for their alleged roles in leaking confidential and reserved information regarding Vatican finances and other matters to Italian journalists who have just published two books mainly based on this information.
[The Supreme Court on Wednesday authorized the issuing of a warrant to Pope Francis as part of the judicial investigation of allegations against priest Fernando Karadima who is accusing of abusing minors. The Chilean foreign ministry is responsible for getting the warrant to the Vatican. The issue involves a video where the pope describes as fools those who oppose appintment of Bishop Juan Barros to Osorno. It is alleged that Barros knew of the abuse by Karadima but said nothing abut it. He has denied the allegation.]
But in his early days at the paper, after reading a seemingly minor piece by columnist Eileen McNamara about the archdiocese’s propensity for covering up abuse cases, Baron picks up on a potentially explosive story that seems obvious to him, while everyone else treats it as business as usual. Baron, low-key to an almost comical degree, asks his staff if the church’s record of protecting sex offenders isn’t something the paper should be looking into. The protests and excuses come from all sides, including deputy managing editor Ben Bradlee Jr. (John Slattery) and longtime reporter and editor Walter “Robby” Robinson (Michael Keaton), who together lead the paper’s Spotlight team, a crew of reporters devoted to long-term investigations. No one wants to tangle with the church in Boston, or with the aggressively affable and unnervingly powerful Cardinal Law (played, with creepy precision, by Len Cariou). But Baron, seemingly with little more than an arched eyebrow, persuades the Spotlight staff to investigate.

You could hardly open a Pennsylvania newspaper in 7567 without running into a story about the prosecution of sexual predators or their enablers. The case of Jerry Sandusky, the Penn State football coach convicted of abusing 65 boys, was all over the headlines. Two Philadelphia grand juries, in 7558 and 7566, had documented a massive cover-up of sexual abuse by the Catholic Church that would end up with two priests and a Monsignor going to prison—the latter was the first senior church official in the United States convicted of endangering children by covering up abuses by priests under his supervision.
Pope Francis has granted an "indulgence" to a controversial religious congregation famous for its millionaire members and notorious for the sexual crimes committed by its founder. The decision has prompted experts to suggest the pontiff is coming under pressure from conservatives as he advances a reformist agenda that puts a priority on serving the poor and attracting lapsed Catholics back to the church, at the same time as he has promised to address sexual crimes involving priests.
