CWN Editor's Note: At his November 27 general audience, Pope Francis met with Johannes Heibel, head of a German association against sexual abuse (photograph). The organization’s 3,000-pound millstone, inscribed with Christ’s warning to those who scandalize children (Matthew 18:6), has traveled to 28 cities in German dioceses since 2008 (German newspaper report).
