JD: The Pope recently held an unprecedented conference, a summit there in Rome with all the Bishops and all the Cardinals from around the world. What was the main focus? I mean it was on the sexual activities of the Priests and even up to the Cardinal level as well but why did the Pope call this conference, the summit at this time?

MG: Well the scandal has really gotten out of hand and some of the higher ranking Cardinals have actually been accused now of sexual abuse. At this recent concave Cardinal Marks revealed that the predator Priests were able to continue abusing children because the files on their crimes were either destroyed or never existed. So we see these abuser were actually moved to other Paris’s and they were able to continue their sexual abuse on these innocent children at different Paris’s.
