Pope Francis revived his lapsed sex abuse advisory commission by naming new members Saturday (Feb. 17), after coming under fire for his overall handling of the scandal and his support for a Chilean bishop accused by victims of witnessing and ignoring their abuse.
The announcement of the new members of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors came on the same day that a Vatican investigator will take the testimony in New York of one of the main whistleblowers in the Chilean cover-up scandal.
Massimo Faggioli, Ph.D., internationally known theologian, expert on Vatican II and Pope Francis’ leadership, prolific writer and sought after speaker, will address Voice of the Faithful’s 2018 Conference: Progress & Promise on Vatican II’s legacy for the laity.
