Belgium: Church pledges progress

Following last Friday's report by the Church's own safeguarding commission into abuse many decades ago, the Archbishop of Mechelen-Brussels, Andre-Joseph Leonard (photo), has given a press conference promising action against abusive priests and healing for victims. The Commission said it had found no evidence of a systematic cover-up by the Church, although much evidence of inaction.  Reuters here. BBC here.
