A global summit on sexual abuse in the Catholic Church has been called by Pope Francis - but what will come of it?
Show Notes

The sexual abuse scandal in the Roman Catholic Church has been going on for decades. After the documentation, this past Fall, of yet more horrific events, Pope Francis has summoned nearly 200 Church leaders from 130 countries to a summit meeting at the Vatican. But what will come from this meeting? What is Pope Francis’ own track record on handling sexual abuse cases? And what needs to be done in order for the Catholic Church to reform? Cathy Driscoll from the Sobey School of Business at SMU joins David to provide answers to these questions.
