BBC News - Spain struggles with new Catholic sex abuse claims

Quote(For almost 50 years, the Franciscan Brothers of the White Cross have run care homes across Spain, looking after the sick and the needy.

Now the Catholic order and its centre in Cordoba are the focus of allegations of sex abuse that have shocked the city.
Franciscan Brothers' care home in Cordoba A Cordoba Catholic care home is at the centre of sex abuse allegations

They have also thrust Spain into the global dispute over how the Church handles claims of abuse.)

It is to be hoped that the Spanish Police will be as assiduous in their investigation as the Belgium Police were.
I have no doubt that the Pope in his turn will equally deny that it is a HRCC problem but that the problem of child abuse is spread throughout the world.
Which i suppose in his eyes makes it ok that his own minions are continuing their 'Pastoral' work.
