Pope says three bishops being probed in abuse cases


Rome, May 27 - Pope Francis says three bishops are
being investigated in connection with sexual abuse cases, adding
that the Church "must go forward with zero tolerance" for abuse
and no special treatment for perpetrators.
During a press conference as the pope returned from a
three-day visit to the Holy Land, Francis said he will meet with
sexual abuse survivors from the United Kingdom, Ireland, and
Germany in the coming weeks.
He described abuse at the hands of Church officials,
including priests, as a "grave crime" comparable to a "black
Mass" by Satanists.
The meetings, which could be held as early as next week,
will include Mass with the pope and will be held at St. Martha's
House, the Vatican guesthouse with Francis lives.
The Vatican has recently come under criticism from United
Nations committees for its handling of cases of sexual abuse by
priests and higher-level Church officials.
Francis had previously apologized for abuse and set up a
Vatican anti-abuse commission.
