BBC news:

"The UN has denounced the Vatican for "systematically" adopting policies allowing priests to sexually abuse thousands of children.

The UN watchdog for children's rights said the Holy See must "immediately remove" all clergy who are known or suspected child abusers.

It heavily criticised the Vatican's attitudes towards homosexuality, contraception and abortion.

The Vatican has set up a commission to fight child abuse in the Church.

It is expected to issue a statement on the report later on Wednesday."

It is wonderful to see lay people within the church asking for justice. Sadly, there are many members of the church who deny the abuse and blame the victim. Maybe now with UN stepping in, these people will open their minds and hearts and accept the abuse is real and destroyed, or changed the lives of so many children. I do hope pressure continues on the church to rid itself of the abusers.

The response from the church will be interesting and how will it be interpreted from the pulpit during weekend Mass.

Thank you for sharing.
