    On the burning issue of the clerically abused victims, I would state that the church of the diocese, where the wrongdoing has been done, is wholly responsible for the clergy’s misbehaviour. In fact, it can strip its ordained members of the sacrament of holy orders. In this case, there is a prima facie U-turn relating to financial compensation. The quantum must be reasonable, and precedents should help establish this issue within attainable limits.
    Personally, I quite agree with Dr Valentino about stopping protests in front of the Curia; they won’t give tangible results, and could lead to an embarrassing outcome.
    Obviously, if the victims still need professional care and counselling, such expenses would be an intrinsic part of the final compensation.
    I sincerely hope this matter would come to a satisfactory conclusion, and that the diocese would be a reliable watchdog to curtail such morbid behaviour.
