Statement on LCWR’s response to Pope Francis’ acknowledgment of sexual abuse of Catholic sisters by clergy

We are encouraged by Pope Francis’s public acknowledgment of the abuse of Catholic sisters by members of the clergy. Let us remember to keep all victims of sexual abuse by clergy, including our fellow women religious, in our prayers and hearts. We continue to pray for healing and justice, and that the Catholic church will find new ways for prevention and to support all victims.
