Pope Francis Invites Bishops Accused of Sex Abuse Cover-Up to Youth Synod

Pope Francis invited several bishops accused of covering up clerical sex abuse to the Synod on Youth this October.

Most bishops who attend the Synod — a religious meeting bringing bishops from around the world to meet with the pope — are selected by their national bishop’s conference to represent a given region, but several bishops were invited to the gathering at Pope Francis’s request.
