After hearing from his council, the pope "decided to convoke a meeting with the presidents of the bishops' conferences of the Catholic Church on the theme of the protection of minors", the council said in a written communique.

Pope Francis will meet with US cardinals and bishops Thursday to discuss the sex abuse scandal, according to the Vatican.

The Vatican said Wednesday the leaders of the national bishops' conferences would meet with Pope Francis from February 21 to 24.

Three of the nine council members were absent for the meetings: Cardinal George Pell, 77, who now is on trial in Australia on sex abuse charges; Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz Ossa, 85, retired archbishop of Santiago, Chile, who is facing questioning over his handling of abuse allegations; and Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo Pasinya of Kinshasa, Congo, who turns 79 in early October.

Wuerl visited the Vatican last month after the release of a bombshell grand jury report in Pennsylvania that revealed allegations of abuse by more than 300 priests across the state, which also questioned Wuerl's own conduct as a supervisor of priests when he was bishop of Pittsburgh.

The pope's key cardinal advisers announced the decision Wednesday, a day before Francis is due to meet with US Catholic church leaders, who have been further discredited by the latest accusations in the decades-long sexual abuse and cover-up scandal.

Viganò said that Cardinal Wuerl was "well aware of the continuous abuses committed by Cardinal McCarrick and the sanctions imposed on him by Pope Benedict" and yet ignored the sanctions and allowed McCarrick "to reside at a seminary in Washington D.C".

Western Cape police stations recorded the highest number of murder reports‚ followed by those in Gauteng. Between April 2016 and the end of March previous year , 52 people were killed per day in South Africa.


Last month, in a letter to the world's Catholics, Francis said the church must prevent sexual abuse from being "covered up and perpetuated".

The Vatican has known since at least 2000 that McCarrick invited seminarians to his New Jersey beach house and into his bed, but was made a cardinal anyway.

Branigin reported from Washington.

In addition, the Vatican has been rocked by an archbishop's accusations that the pope knew for years about alleged sexual misconduct by a top American cardinal but took no action.

DiNardo has said that he wants the pope to approve a full investigation of the McCarrick case, and that reports of a cover-up by the Vatican and the pope himself need to be answered.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a policy in 2002 that is regarded as the gold standard policy.

The past of the Catholic Church is being dug up in other countries. The news outlets said the report was due to be released September 25 and they obtained it in advance.
