Bishop Richard Malone issues statement about Vatican summit

Bishop Richard J. Malone of the Diocese of Buffalo Thursday released a statement about the summit at the Vatican with Pope Francis and dozens of bishops from around the world aimed at addressing the sexual abuse crisis within the Catholic Church.

In his statement, Malone said the summit had three overarching themes: responsibility, accountability and transparency — to which Malone vowed to commit himself, as well as the priests, deacons and laity of the Buffalo Diocese.

"I also look forward to the results and directions given by the summit and am grateful that Pope Francis is leading this effort to address the global crisis," Malone said in the statement.
