Pope says sexual abusers are ‘disgusting enemies’ but should still be loved

Posted: Tuesday, May 9, 2023. 10:26 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Pope Francis met with Jesuits in Hungary on April 29, 2023 and the day after that meeting his comments were published Tuesday in the Italian Jesuit journal Civilta Cattolica, as is customary.

According to Reuters, the Pontiff said that sexual abusers are disgusting “enemies” who deserve to be condemned and punished – but also deserve Christian love and pastoral care because they too are children of God.

His comments come amidst records of abuse scandals that have plagued the Catholic church.

The Pontiff has passed a series of measures over the last 10 years aimed at holding the Church hierarchy more accountable.

“The abuser is an enemy. Each of us feels this because we empathise with the suffering of the abused … even talking to the abuser involves revulsion; it’s not easy. But they are God’s children too. They deserve punishment, but they also deserve pastoral care,” Pope Francis said.
