The Vienna Archbishop, Christoph Schönborn in an Interview with the star-clear words on the crisis of his Church. “In abuse cases, it is the first EMS Act in the sense of a sacrifice,” says the Confidant of Pope Francis. “You mustn’t expect any miracles,” he says of the forthcoming global meeting of the presidents of the Episcopal conferences. “It is a painful long process. The most Important thing is the awareness.”

The year-long Denial and Cover-up of many Spiritual born says: “That was a big mistake, it was many to protect the Institution.” He had made it clear at an early stage, that “the honor of a cardinal never to make a stand on the protection of the data”. His deceased predecessor, Hans Hermann Groer, who was himself of cases, the perpetrators in many of the abuse, referred to it as “in many respects, great man. A man is defined solely through his fault.” On the question of whether he believes priests who have made sexual abuse of minors guilty of theologically in hell, responds Schönborn: “I have to say this with all seriousness: It is of course a danger for the eternal life. If someone damaged the lives of young people massively and hurt, the questions, as he wants to appear before his God.”
