Vatican Meets With Abuse Survivors
According to CNN, Organizers of a key Vatican summit on clergy sexual abuse met with abuse survivors from around the world on Wednesday.
Afterward organizers said that the meeting will help them "better understand the gravity and urgency of the difficulties" church leaders will face during the four-day summit.
According to a Vatican statement the meeting lasted for about two hours and included 12 clergy abuse survivors from around the world.
The unprecedented four-day summit, convened by Pope Francis last September, will include two speeches by the Pope, talks outlining best practices, small group discussions among bishops and a penitential ceremony involving abuse survivors.
