Cardinal Bertone, what we need is not “spiritual renewal” but “a Catholic Registry of Pedophile Priests” to warn and protect children
Benedict XVI, his Cardinals and Bishops, his Vatican media spinners are all talking invisible abstract “spiritual” things to solve the sexual abuse by pedophile priests when there is one essential thing that matters the most -- that is a Catholic Registry of Pedophile Priests to warn parents and children so they can be vigilant and stay away from them.
Currently all those more than 6,000 alleged pedophile priests that were settled out of court or in court by all dioceses in the USA are not known. Their files are confidential and therefore they are free to prey on young altar boys and the parents are all gullible to welcome these predators into their homes and in their midst.
Cardinal Roger Mahony alone spent tens of millions of dollars to keep the files of more than 600 pedophile priests in Los Angeles confidential. Up to today, Los Angeles harbours the largest number of pedophile priests in US history with the largest settlement of $660 millions dollars to their victims. But this is a piece of cake for billionaire Mahony who send in 1 billion dollars of revenue to the Vatican trillion dollars Bank each year (one of his aides told us).

Sex abuse: Bertone says 'infidelity' of some priests will give birth to 'spiritual renewal'
June 10, 2010. In front of four thousand priests, the Vatican's second highest authority, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, said cases of sexual abuse undermine the Church's credibility. But he also said that the pain caused by this will bring a “spiritual renewal”.
Card. Tarcisio Bertone
Vatican Secretary of State
“In this period we have had to carry the pain of infidelity, at times grave, of some members of the clergy who have negatively influenced the credibility of the Church. Because of this, the Pope, responding to journalists on his trip to Portugal, spoke of a 'persecution' born within the Church.”
It was during a gathering of priests from all over the world organized by the Focolare and Schönstatt Movement, for the ending of the Year for Priests.
The cardinal said the pope is calling for “conversion and purification.”
Vatican Secretary of State
“We must follow the path to conversion, purification and reconciliation with courage. Look for new paths to bring youths the beauty and richness of friendship with Jesus Christ in the communion with your Church.”
Cardinal Bertone repeated words the pope said on his way to Portugal, saying persecution of the Church is born from sins of people from within the Church.
He also said celibacy is understood when one sees a priest as “a man of God”, not only when he prays or celebrates the sacraments but “in his whole life”, when he shows the “love and mercy” of God.
For that reason he said mankind needs priests who give themselves unconditionally.
