In a move that has shocked the media and silenced Church critics, Pope Francis has named a woman who was molested by a member of the clergy to be part of a panel that will advice the Vatican on how to prevent sexual abuse.

He has named four women and four men so far from different countries.  Cardinal O’Malley of the Boston archdiocese as ell as Hanna Suchocka – former Polish Prime Minister,British psychiatrist Baroness Sheila Hollins, psychologist Hans Zollner, moral theologian Humberto Miguel Yanez, canon law professor Claudio Papal as well as two Jesuit priests are among them.

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests or “SNAP” are content with Collin’s appointment, but still believe the Pope has not done enough.  As the cliche goes, “there’s always a critic.” This group will not be truly content unless the Church disappears or goes bankrupt from paying out settlements.

Credit must be given to Pope Benedict XVI as well who implemented many measures to combat the problem of sexual abuse upon which Pope Francis is building.
