CWN Editor's Note: The conference, entitled “Irritated Systems,” featured speakers who called for continued vigilance in addressing the sexual abuse of minors. Father Hans Zollner, president of the Center for Child Protection at Pontifical Gregorian University, said that “sexual abuse in the ecclesial realm should not lead to a self-styling as a victim institution” and challenged participants to focus on the human suffering of victims rather than on institutional security.
