A global congress to be held in Rome next week will focus on how to protect children in the digital age, bringing together various experts from around the world to develop concrete ways to combat the issue of online child sex abuse.
Fr. Hans Zollner, SJ told journalists Sept. 29 that this is an issue that is dangerous for "many, many young people in the world today."
Head of the Center for Child Protection and a member of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors, Zollner said he has spoken to many parents who do not know what to do about their children's access to the internet: "Everyone is talking and they do not know what to do."
With this congress, "we can propose something we believe could be useful."
