Catholic bishops have ‘moral and ethical responsibility’ to report sex abuse to police, says Pope’s chief adviser in apparent shift towards stricter guidelines

  • Cardinal Sean O’Malley has updated rules for reporting clerical sex abuse

  • He said all allegations must be reported to the appropriate civil authorities 

  • Previous guidelines said reports should be made only if the law required it 

  • Pope Francis will today visit the troubled city of Morelia in Michoacan state

Roman Catholic bishops have a ‘moral and ethical responsibility’ to report instances of clerical sex abuse even if local laws do not require it, according to Pope Francis’ chief advisor as the Pontiff prepares for the fourth day of his Mexican visit.

Boston Cardinal Sean O’Malley’s statement goes significantly further than current Vatican guidelines from 2010 which urge bishops to report suspected abuse to the authorities only if the law requires it.

O’Malley, who heads the pope’s abuse advisory commission, issued the statement after a recent course for new Catholic bishops on handling abuse cases featured a French monsignor who reportedly said bishops don’t have to report cases. He said it is up to families and victims to do so.

The failure of bishops to turn suspected and known paedophiles over to police is one of the main reasons that the church’s abuse scandal grew to the extent it did, since bishops for decades moved rapists from parish to parish rather than hand them over to law enforcement.

In the statement, O’Malley and members of the commission affirmed that civil reporting laws must be followed. But they stressed that ‘even beyond these civil requirements, we all have a moral and ethical responsibility to report suspected abuse to the civil authorities who are charged with protecting our society’.

O’Malley’s statement was issued as Pope Francis continued his five-day visit to Mexico.

Despite calls from victims groups, the Vatican has said Francis has no plans to meet with Mexican survivors of abuse. Mexico’s most notorious case involved the disgraced founder of the Legion of Christ religious order, who raped his seminarians and fathered three children.

Yesterday, Pope Francis said mass in San Cristobal de las Casas, in Chiapas State. He used the Mass to warn of the dangers of ‘one of the greatest environmental crisis in history’.  He also asked Mexican Indians for forgiveness over the Catholic Church’s colonial-era crimes.   He said: ‘The environmental challenge that we are experiencing and its human causes, affects us all and demands our response. ‘We can no longer remain silent before one of the greatest environmental crises in world history,’ he told the indigenous congregants. ‘In this regard, you have much to teach us. Your peoples… know how to interact harmoniously with nature,’ he added.

‘And yet, on many occasions, in a systematic and organized way, your people have been misunderstood and excluded from society,’ he said. ‘How sad this is! How worthwhile it would be for each of us to examine our conscience and learn to say, ‘Forgive me!’ Today’s world, ravaged as it is by a throwaway culture, needs you!’ ‘In this regard, you have much to teach us,’ he added, speaking under clear blue skies at a sports complex in the mountain city of San Cristobal de las Casas.

Pope Francis gave drops of medicine to Rodrigo Lopez Miranda during a visit to a children's hospital in Mexico City as part of his five-day tour which will see him visit six cities across four different states

Pope Francis will today visit the city of Morelia in the troubled western state of Michoacan, which is home to the Knights Templar drugs cartel. Hundreds of people have been queuing up overnight to see Pope Francis who will tour the state capital.  Ana Maria Campos, 58, who was among those who spent the night outside said: ‘I hope that the pope’s visit will quell the ugly things that are happening: the violence, the kidnappings and murders.’

Michoacan endured some of the most gruesome episodes of Mexico’s drug war, which has left 100,000 people dead or missing in the past decade, including dozens of priests, some of them in this state. The Pontiff has used his five-day cross-country trip, which ends Wednesday, to press Mexican leaders to provide ‘effective security’ to their citizens.
