In the Vineyard :: September 11, 2015 :: Volume 15, Issue 17

Dear Pope Francis:

Greetings, Holy Father, and our sincerest best wishes for continued success in your efforts to bring us all closer to God and each other.  We share your enthusiasm for this most worthwhile task.

We in the Mid-Michigan Affiliate of Voice of the Faithful have been following with interest the establishment, membership and actions of the Papal Commission on the Protection of Minors.  We are heartened by what we see and read, but are concerned that there has been no funding announced to support the Commission’s activities, including travel expense for face-to-face meetings. We believe this to be a serious omission, as effective communication is facilitated by face-to -ace meetings, at least in the initial meetings of a newly formed organization.

We therefore request that you ensure that the Commission is fully funded, so that its work can go forward and demonstrate the sincerity of the Church’s commitment to the protection of our children, the support of past victims and the institution of measures to prevent future abuse.

We thank you in advance for your support of the Commission and pray for you and your work each day.

Voice of the Faithful
Mid-Michigan Affiliate
Joseph Schoren, President
