Top Vatican sex-abuse prosecutor recalls Pope's anger, determination

Catholic World News - August 23, 2010

In an interview with the Fox News TV network, Msgr. Charles Scicluna, the Vatican’s top prosecutor for cases involving sexual abuse, recalls that he was “a direct witness to the compassion, the frustration and the anger that these cases instilled in Cardinal Ratzinger, the man.”

Msgr. Scicluna, who worked with the future Pontiff on the disciplinary cases that were presented to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, said that he saw Cardinal Ratazinger’s determination to eliminate the corruption. The sex-abuse scandal, he told Fox, is “an opportunity for the Church to show itself determined in its fight against sin, against crime.”
