The Catholic church should confess all its sins on sexual abuse

Pope Francis delivers a speech on Aug. 19 2018 at St. Peter's Square in the Vatican

"The abuses described in the report are criminal and morally reprehensible", Burke said, adding, "The Church must learn hard lessons from its past, and there should be accountability for both abusers and those who permitted abuse to occur". The dioceses represent about 1.7 million Catholics.

All told, USA bishops have acknowledged that more than 17,000 people nationwide have reported being molested by priests and others in the church going back to 1950. "It goes all the way back 70 years and when you look back and you see all of that, it sounds as if we didn't do anything, but when you look at the actual numbers from 2002 on, those numbers dropped dramatically", Wuerl said.

A Catholic Cardinal has blamed sexual abuse scandals on a "homosexual culture" within the Church.

Chicago Cardinal Blase Cupich issued a three-page response on Friday to a Pennsylvania grand jury's damning report on sexual abuse of children by priests and cover-up efforts by church leaders, promising the Catholic Church would establish new ways of reporting complaints against bishops.

Nick Ingala, a spokesman for Voice of the Faithful, a group formed to promote parishioners' voices after the abuse scandal surfaced, said it was heartening that bishops wanted to set up an independent review process but he expressed skepticism that it would be successful.

An official of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines said this following the news on the Pennsylvania clerical abuse report.

The Pennsylvania grand jury concluded that he reported some allegedly abusive priests to the Vatican but allowed other individual parishes to resolve the accusations in other cases.

Loyola Ranks Among Top Three Hospitals In State, According to U.S
News & World Report's are just one tool available to patients as they make informed decisions about their health care. The magazine on Tuesday released its highly respected rankings of national, state and regional hospitals.

"It is also part of this catastrophe that so many faithful priests who are pursuing holiness and serving with integrity are tainted by this failure".

The grand jury called for changes in the law that would scrap the statute of limitations for child sex abuse, give victims more time to file civil lawsuits and tighten legislation compelling people to report abuse they find out about.

Since the abuse crisis became public in the 2000s, the United States church has spent more than $3bn in settlements, according to Bishop Accountability.

U.S. Catholic bishops are reportedly calling for an investigation into sexual abuse allegations against Theodore McCarrick, the former archbishop of Washington, D.C., who resigned last month.

In 2013, a diocese's settlement with 11 men who accused a Franciscan friar of sexually abusing them at a Catholic high school in northeast OH more than two decades earlier stoked complaints that the friar had abused boys at a Pennsylvania school in the late 1990s.

"These documents, from the dioceses" own "Secret Archives, ' formed the backbone of this investigation".

That work detailed some of the most horrific sexual abuse allegations about Catholic priests ever seen. Wuerl, who was bishop of the Pittsburgh diocese from 1988 to 2006, disputed the allegations.
