The Vatican summit on the protection of minors, from February 21 to 24, ended with the promise of 'decisively confront' the abuse, but actual clergy sex abuse victims expressed their frustrations and were doubtful about the Church's future actions. 

Pope Francis, in his final address to the participants of the summit, vowed to confront abusers with "the wrath of God' felt by the faithful, end the cover-ups by their superiors and prioritize the victims of this "brazen, aggressive and destructive evil," report the AP. 

The Pope said the sexual abuse of children happens in the family, but it becomes even more scandalous when it occurs in the Catholic Church, "for it is utterly incompatible with her moral authority and ethical credibility."
