Resource of the Month

Safeguarding (Perspectives Book 4)
La Civiltà Cattolica, Hans Zollner and Five More

La Civiltà Cattolica has published this volume on safeguarding the young and vulnerable. The book comprises ten articles that examines different aspects of the problem from different viewpoints. Safeguarding begins with an editorial The Problem of Pedophilia, that appeared in 2002. Two articles authored by Hans Zollner, SJ from the Gregorian University’s Center for Child Protection, the Church’s leading specialist on protection and managing offenders and Fr Giovanni Cucci, SJ reference person for the Euro-Mediterranean Province of the Jesuits for cases of abuse, look closely at psychological aspects of the problem and how to combat the culture of pedophilia. Two more articles by Fr Zollner focus on children: protecting them and the spiritual wounds they and all abuse victims suffer. An article from one of La Civiltà Cattolica’s finest writers, Fr Diego Fares, SJ outlines the scandal in Chile. Two articles by Fr Federico Lomardi, SJ who will mediate the plenary sessions of the meeting of presidents of conferences in February 2019, discuss preparations for the meeting and also more recent, practical developments in child protection and education and formation of religious working to stop abuse. The final articles are from the Gregorian University’s Center for Child Protection Towards Healing and Renewal: the proceedings of a symposium on child sexual abuse, and The Dignity of Minors in the Digital World: An International Congress.
