Vatican: Preliminary report on anti-paedophilia guidelines is ready - Vatican Insider:

"In recent weeks bishops from across the world sent the Holy See their guidelines for preventing and combating sex abuse against minors perpetrated by clerics. In the next few days the Vatican will publish a preliminary report containing the assessment of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. This is a delicate task given the diversity in the various Episcopates’ opinions on such a distressing topic.


Most of the world’s Episcopates have already responded to the call from the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, William Levada, in a letter dated 3 May 2011. In the letter, the cardinal asked all Episcopal conferences to put together their own set of guidelines for combating the scourge of paedophilia in their respective areas. The deadline was set for the end of May 2012."
