Pope Francis is facing sexual abuse crises in several countries. This has prompted him to write an unprecedented letter to all Catholics, says Reuters. He asked each one of them to help root out “this culture of death.” The Pope also vowed that there would be no more cover ups. Pope Francis addressed his letter to “the people of God.” This is the first time a pope has written to all Catholics about sexual abuse. The pope quoted a Gospel passage that says “If one member suffers, all suffer together.”
