University of Notre Dame students and members of the community listened to Malta Archbishop Charles Scicluna talk about the Vatican’s fight against sex abuse.
It took place at the Duncan Student Centre.
The question-and-answer session was part of a 2019-2020 forum series called “Rebuild My Church: Crisis and Response,” which is intended to examine the sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church.
Scicluna has done a lot in his lifetime, but the child sexual abuse scandals have been a cornerstone in his career. He speaks heart-to-heart with many victims and survivors.
“You are dealing with a human being that has been hurt and betrayed on a level that we cannot really understand. … It is a spiritual betrayal,” Scicluna said.
Some even referred to him as a “point of hope” for the Catholic Church.
