Pope Francis is adding new members to a commission tasked with protecting children from predators.
Church Militant's Nick Wylie discusses the man responsible for the group's lack of credibility.
Pope Francis: "Here I would reaffirm that the Church will spare no effort to do all that is necessary to bring to justice whosoever has committed such crimes."
Pope Francis is adding 10 new members to the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors.
They will join 10 returning members of the Commission, which is headed by Boston's Cdl. Seán O'Malley.
O'Malley has been the president of the Commission since its inception by Pope Francis in 2014.
Recently, O'Malley's archdiocese of Boston quietly instructed parishes and schools not to support the National Men's March to Abolish Abortion.
Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, cofounder, National Men's March: "So the March for Life is telling everybody do local marches, local marches, local marches. And we're doing a local march up in Boston — two devout Catholic men, a layman and a priest in good standing — and the archdiocese is saying, 'We don't want anything to do with you.'"
Cardinal O'Malley is 78 years old, three years past the retirement age for bishops, leading faithful Catholics to question why the pope is continuing to keep him in leadership positions.
Another member of the commission, Fr. Hans Zollner, recently came under fire after a German bishop found culpable of covering up abuse — Bp. Franz-Josef Bode — revealed he consulted with Zollner before deciding not to resign.
