Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle has said that the Church needs to support missionary dioceses with expertise to implement the sex abuse prevention protocols mandated by the pope.
The prefect of the Vatican Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples said in an interview with a French television station that his dicastery was working to “follow up” with Catholic bishops’ conferences on their abuse prevention measures.
“Maybe in established churches, it is easier for them to form the committees, the commissions, because then you have trained people,” Tagle said.
“And this is where we need to assist the young churches because some of them are just developing … They need psychologists. They need canon lawyers.”
