Pope to Meet with US Church Leaders over Clergy Sex Abuse

first_img Share Vatican NewsPope Francis has agreed to meet a delegation of U.S. bishops and cardinals to discuss the Vatican response to the clergy abuse crisis.After weeks of relative silence, Pope Francis has agreed to meet a delegation of U.S. bishops and cardinals to discuss the Vatican response to the clergy abuse crisis.A Vatican spokesman says the meeting at the Apostolic Palace on Thursday will include Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, who leads the U.S. Conference of Bishops, and Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston, who advises the pope on sex abuse issues. Archbishop Jose Gomez, vice president of the bishops’ conference, and Monsignor Brian Bransfield, the conference secretary, will also attend, according to the Vatican.Separately, Pope Francis is also expected to meet with Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the embattled Washington, D.C., archbishop accused of helping to cover up for abusive priests.In a letter to his priests released on Tuesday, Wuerl said he recognized that “a new beginning” may be needed in his church, and he said he will travel to Rome “in the very near future” to discuss his possible resignation with Pope Francis.John L. Mone/APCardinal Daniel DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston and head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, will meet in Rome with Pope Francis and other church leaders to discuss further investigations into abuse.The church’s handling of clergy sex abuse is also due to be discussed at the meeting Thursday between the pope and U.S. bishops. Cardinal DiNardo asked for the meeting last month, saying he wanted the pope to support an investigation into the scandal around former Washington, D.C., Archbishop Theodore McCarrick, who resigned from the College of Cardinals in response to allegations that he once abused a teenage boy.One question is how early Pope Francis was advised of McCarrick’s alleged misconduct and what, if anything, he did in response. The Vatican’s former ambassador to the U.S., Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, released an explosive letter on August 26, accusing top Vatican and U.S. church leaders of covering up for McCarrick for many years.In that letter, Vigano implicated Pope Francis in the McCarrick cover-up and called on him to resign the papacy. Francis has yet to respond to Vigano’s accusations, but the pope’s Council of Cardinals reported this week that the Vatican will soon provide some “clarifications” regarding recent events.The pope accepted McCarrick’s resignation in July and ordered him to remain in “prayer and penance” until the accusations against him could be examined in a canonical trial. The U.S. bishops who will meet with Francis on Thursday are expected to press the pope on how that trial would proceed.A top Vatican official earlier this week acknowledged that some allegations against McCarrick were brought to the Vatican’s attention as early as 2000.Cardinal Wuerl has been under intense pressure to step down since last month, when a Pennsylvania grand jury reported several instances when he, as bishop of Pittsburgh, was told of credible abuse allegations against priests under his supervision but still gave the men new parish assignments.In the letter sent Tuesday to priests in his archdiocese, Wuerl said it became clear “that some decision, sooner rather than later, on my part is an essential aspect so that this archdiocesan Church we all love can move forward.”As is customary for bishops who turn 75, Wuerl had already submitted a formal letter of resignation, but it is up to Pope Francis whether to accept it.The release of the Pennsylvania grand jury report and the uproar over McCarrick’s past conduct amount to the most serious crisis facing the Vatican in years. A top aide to Pope Benedict and Pope Francis on Tuesday said the scandal amounted to the church’s “own 9/11” catastrophe.Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.last_img read more

Memories of home

first_imgRedefining the idea of home when all is lost and when borders are etched between lands and people, this is what Sheba Remy Kharbanda and William Charles Moss’s documentary is all about. To be screened from 14 to 21 November in India Habitat Centre, Five Rivers: A Portrait of Partition is  a documentary in Cyclorama featuring a video art installation by these multi-disciplinary artists.  The documentary illustrates the intimate complexities of ‘home’. Staged inside a traditional Indian wedding tent, this cycloramic screening marries culture-bridging conventions of storytelling to the stimulation of a sculptural installation.

Singh’s introspective recollections carry an  invitation for participants to trace his turbulent journey to redefine home across the sudden and stark borders created by the establishment of Pakistan and India as independent states.

In May, 2014, her essay entitled, A Lesson in Love was published in the anthology, Her Name Is Kaur: Sikh American Women Write about Love, Courage, and Faith. With Five Rivers, Kharbanda seeks to weave threads through questions of identity, displacement and memory – questions she continues to grapple with and which she feels are her ancestral inheritance.William Charles Moss is a photographer and cinematographer who began in the feature film industry almost twenty years ago, before discovering the world of documentary film, which has since become his passion. Together with Kharbanda, he runs Callejero Films, a Brooklyn-based video production company.
