Pope Downplays Upcoming Vatican Summit On Sex Abuse

According to CNN, Pope Francis downplayed the expectations for an upcoming bishops' meeting in Rome on the church's clergy sex abuse scandal.

The Pope's council of cardinal advisers suggested the summit, according to Francis, because "some bishops didn't understand well, or didn't know what to do" about the sex abuse crisis.

Francis explained that the goal is to make bishops aware of the problem and to share roles and responsibilities, a set of protocols, on the handling by bishops and archbishops.
