CWN Editor's Note: Father Federico Lombardi, the retired director of the Vatican press office, will act as moderator during February meetings to discuss the sex-abuse crisis, the Vatican has announced. The meetings—which will bring together leaders from all the world’s episcopal conferences—will include testimony from victims and a penitential liturgy, as well as discussions by the full assembly and smaller working groups.
