| 2295 hits

VATICAN CITY, JULY 16, 2010 (Zenit.org).- The Vatican has gathered all the pertinent documents on the Church's response to the sexual abuse crisis and posted them together on it's Web site.

It launched the new page Thursday, the same day the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith published the revised norms for the "more grave crimes" (gravioribus delictis).  

The revisions are an update to the 2001 apostolic letter "Sacramentorum Sanctitatis Tutela," which outlined the norms for addressing cases of serious offenses.

Called "Abuse of Minors. The Church's Response," the page offers the revisions published Thursday, addresses given by Benedict XVI and John Paul II on the topic, as well as other related documents.
