Pope Supports Chilean Victims of Sexual Abuses

Pope Supports Chilean Victims of Sexual Abuses

After private meetings with Pope Francis, three survivors of clergy sexual abuse from Chile said they felt they had been heard and were hopeful for changes in the way the Catholic Church handles accusations of abuse. A third man, Juan Carlos Cruz, also was meeting with Francis.

Although the three of them have been very cautious when commenting their impressions on their respective meetings with the Pope, all of them have hinted their conviction that for the first time their truth has reached a satisfactory conclusion.

Murillo, who hoped the audiences would "bear fruit quickly" as to the extent of abuse within the church in Chile.He added the trio were in the Vatican to speak out in the name of victims of disgraced paedophile priest Fernando Karadima.

However, he later apologised to the victims and dispatched Archbishop Charles Scicluna, a renowned Vatican investigator, to Chile to collect evidence.

Allegations were also made against three other bishops - Andrés Arteaga, Tomislav Koljatic and Horacio Valenzuela - who Father Karadima's victims accuse of also covering the abuser's crimes.

"We are increasingly aware that many evils can be avoided if greater attention is paid to the style of life we adopt and the culture we promote", he told delegates. It is said to be much more extensive, including details from other cases, such as the Marist Brothers, who are now under canonical investigation after allegations of sexual abuse by some of the members surfaced in August 2017.

During a January visit to Chile, Francis sought to discredit the men's claims that a bishop covered up their abuse, calling the victims' assertions "calumny".

Following orders from Pope Francis, Cruz, Hamilton and Murillo are staying at the Holy Mary House, the residence of the Bishop of Rome in the Vatican, being this another demonstration of the Holy Pontiff's commitment to fighting pedophilia.

Above all, Cruz said he wanted to convey "the pain and suffering of so many people", many of whom, he said, suffered more than he has, and "I've suffered a lot". "May the Lord give us the grace to look upwards toward heaven and think: "The Lord is praying for me".

Addressing some of the world's leading doctors and scientists, Pope Francis said diseases like cancer could be avoided if people adopted good health practices from childhood. This meeting will make us happy forever, he said.
