Catholic Church Penal Code
Title: Reaction To The Changes In The Catholic Church’s Penal Code
Podcast: The Pat Kenny Show
Presenter: Pat Kenny interviews Marie Collins
Pope Francis has ordered the biggest changes to the Catholic Church’s penal code in four decades, which will force bishops to take action against clerics who abuse minors and vulnerable adults or else lose office. Priests who engage in sexual acts with anyone, not just a minor or one who lacks the use of reason can be defrocked if they used “force, threats or abuse of his authority” to engage in sexual acts, the code states. Pat was joined on the show by Marie Collins, survivor and advocate, for her reaction to the Catholic Church’s new penal code on reporting sex abuse.
