Church communicators must stand in solidarity

SIGNIS has emphasised the duty of Catholic communicators to “take up the pain of the victims and the defenseless”. This is in response to the recently emerging stories of the sexual abuse of minors by clergy in the Church community.

In his August 20 Letter to the People of God, Pope Francis stated: “The pain of these victims is an anguished cry that reaches to the heavens…But this cry was stronger than all efforts to silence it, including attempts to resolve the matter that crossed over into complicity, compounding the gravity of the abuse.”

The August 27 statement by Fr Luis Garcia Orso SJ, the Ecclesiastical Assistant of SIGNIS said that Catholic communicators must stand in solidarity with the victims and insist on transparency and truthful reporting of the facts as an avenue to renewal of the Church.
