Can the Vatican reform? Pope heads summit on child sex abuse
Date created :
Can the Catholic Church reform itself? A landmark conference on sex abuse presided by the pope himself marks the latest attempt by the Vatican to hit the reset button. Since the first time the Church addressed the crisis under John Paul II, the floodgates have opened with an ever-growing list of cases and cover-ups. To restore faith, the hierarchy must rethink its culture of secrecy. How open must it become? Is it time to go further and roll back celibacy altogether? What do the faithful want?
