CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis met on December 1 with José David Correa Gonzalez, the superior general of the Sodality of Christian Life (SCV), a society of apostolic life, founded in Peru, that has been troubled for years.

The Vatican conducted an investigation of the SCV beginning in 2016, after complaints emerged of abuse by the group’s founder, Luis Fernando Figari. Eventually Figari was barred from contact with SCV members, and a Vatican “commissioner” was appointed to ensure a reform of the group. More recently new complaints against the SCV have included charges of financial misconduct and reports that members have harassed reporters attempting to expose corruption.
