The Gospel speaks of welcome for all, especially the most vulnerable, into a Church which affirms the value and dignity of every human and where those in positions of responsibility and authority are truly trustworthy. Being faithful to this therefore compels us to take with utmost seriousness the challenge of preventing abuse from happening and responding well where it has taken place.
