The child sex-abuse crisis engulfing the Catholic Church has prompted the archbishop of Philadelphia to ask Pope Francis to cancel a bishops' conference focusing on youth in the church scheduled to begin in a month.
Archbishop Charles Chaput made the request by letter, a spokesman for the archdiocese confirmed Saturday, though he would not comment further. The Youth Synod, which would include bishops from around the world, has been in the works for two years and is focused on the theme "young people, the faith, and vocational discernment," according to the event's website. An international panel of youths are expected to join the council of bishops for the event.
"I have written the Holy Father and called on him to cancel the forthcoming synod on young people," Chaput said at a conference Thursday at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, according to LifeSite News, a conservative Catholic website. "Right now, the bishops would have absolutely no credibility in addressing this topic."

Sounds like Spring Break for the prelates.
One of they key participates at the Youth Synod will be none other than Archbishop Tobin of Newark. He has called Vigano a liar and said he knew nothing about McCarricks lifelong predatory homosexuality. McCarrick recommended him to the pope for his current job. Without McCarrick he would have never made Archbishop. Its long been rumored that hes a practicing sodomite. Bergoglio personally selected Tobin for the synod.
I would say “Ditto!”
Obviously they have been focusing on the youth far too long...If they cancel, just think of the kids that won't get molested and raped...
