Pope Fran­cis has es­tab­lished le­gal pro­ce­dures to re­move bish­ops who botch han­dling of sex abuse cases, say­ing they can be kicked out of of­fice if the Vatican finds they were neg­li­gent in do­ing their jobs. In a law pub­lished yes­ter­day, Fran­cis an­swered a lon­grun­ning de­mand by vic­tims. Bish­ops “must un­der­take dili­gence in pro­tect­ing those who are the weak­est among their flock,” Fran­cis wrote in the law.
