‘Chicago Tribune’ reports that the Pope has appointed an Irish woman – who was molested by a member of the clergy as a child – to the* core group of experts meant to help fight such abuses within the Catholic Church*. The Pope has been accused of not taking a strong enough stance against sexual abuse committed by the clergy though he has made statements saying he plans to continue the work of his predecessor. The role of the group is to consider the best options for the Church to take to prevent child abuse and make sure that those who have committed such crimes be brought to justice.
