Cardinal Cupich Pens Letter on Upcoming Abuse Crisis Summit

Cardinal Blase Cupich penned a letter earlier this month that gives insight into the upcoming global summit on the sex abuse crisis that has rocked the Catholic Church.

Pope Francis called the rare meeting of Catholic leaders from around the world, requesting their attendance at a five-day conference from Feb. 21 to 24 at the Vatican.

Cupich is playing a key role at that meeting, as one of the four organizers tapped to lead the summit.

In an op-ed in the Chicago Archdiocese's newspaper "The Chicago Catholic" on Jan. 23, Cupich said the aim of the summit is "to provide clear direction and concrete steps so that when the bishops return to their home countries around the world, they will know exactly what the church expects of them regarding the prevention of abuse, the need to provide care for victim-survivors, and the obligation to make sure abuse is not covered up.”
