Vatican City.– For the first time on Monday, Pope Francis will meet victims of paedophile priests, as a Vatican commission moves to address the problem of clerical sex abuse in developing countries.

According to press reports from the Vatican, six victims from Britain, Germany and Ireland will talk with the head of the Roman Catholic Church at his private residence near Saint Peter's Basilica. The private meeting is awaited by victim support groups who have criticized the Argentinian for not acting earlier.

A historic first trial against a former ambassador to the Vatican is expected to take place after Polish archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, former papal envoy to the Dominican Republic, was convicted of sex abuse by a Church tribunal last month.

if the church wants true forgiveness...sent the pedophiles back to the country to talk with the victims. It is a true joke of justice and one that makes our system look good...when one simply gets off (sorry the pun) by removing his title. A truly embarrassing religion.

There have been some horrible popes but in my lifetime this Peronist, Scumbag is the worst. Even worse than that protector of pedophiles JP2.

There have been some horrible popes but in my lifetime this (Peronist), Saint is "Francis The Great". Even better, the prosecutor of pedophiles.

Francis The Reformer "Bouncer".!!!


The pillars of the Peronist ideal, known as the "three flags", are social justice, economic independence, and political sovereignty. Peronism can be described as a third position ideology, as it (rejects the extremes of capitalism and communism). Peronism espouses corporatism and thus aims to mediate tensions between the classes of society, with the state responsible for negotiating compromise in conflicts between managers and workers.

I "Follow H'im" because H'is "Humility". (One of Twelve).

antonyc Deje de hablar disparates, antes de hablar piense mejor. quien se cree para juzgar asi a un Papa. y detractarlo, hay gente que habla mal de todo el mundo, sin verse a si mismo.

Olvidamos las enseñanzas del mejor hombre y ejemplo que existio, Jesus de Nazareth "El que este libre de pecado que tire la primera pidra".y "Con la misma que mides, seras medido"
