Pope Francis releases document to deal with abuse in the Church

New norms against those who abuse or cover up

Pope Francis has released Motu proprio intended as a universal and concrete response to the phenomenon of abuse within the Church. Titled Vos estis lux mundi, the motu proprio is one of the fruits of the 'abuse summit' convoked by the Holy Father earlier this year.

According to Cardinal Marc Ouellet, the prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, this document "establishes new and efficacious procedures to combat the plague of abuse."  Read this latest Motu Proprio here.
