CWN Editor's Note: On April 7, Pope Francis received the president, vice president, and secretary-general of the Spanish Episcopal Conference.

In February, Spain’s bishops established a commission to investigate clerical sexual abuse. The conference’s president, Cardinal Juan José Omella of Barcelona, told reporters that the Pope “encouraged us to walk along that path of accompanying [abuse] victims, because they are at the center of everything, to collaborate in everything and, above all, to prevent these things from happening again.”
