Bonsoir M. Vallas,

 

I have received the letter that you sent to the address of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors. I have carefully read it and I want to express all my heartfelt sympathy to you.

 

I have been informed by the office of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors that they will determine how to proceed with the issues presented in your letter.

 

As a member of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors and as President of the Centre for Child Protection of the Pontifical Gregorian University I work in the field of Safeguarding of Minors worldwide.

I would like to assure you that the work at our Centre for Child Protection of our University is based on encounters with and testimonies of survivors of clerical sexual abuse and that this is the motivation for doing whatever can be done so that abuse does not happen again.

 

Best regards,

 

Hans Zollner SJ
