CWN Editor's Note: The Congregation for Religious has rejected criticism that it is sheltering Luis Fernando Figari, the founder of the Sodality of Christian Life, who was convicted of sexual abuse last year. In February 2017 the Vatican ruled that Figari could not have contact with the movement he founded, nor could he return to his native Peru. Figari, how living in Rome, has appealed the conviction; a first appeal was turned down in January of this year; a second is pending.
