THE PREY | Sexual Abuse in the Catholic Church

0.0 ·

Italy is the symbol of the Catholic Church. Vatican City, the smallest independent state in the world, is situated right in the heart of Rome. The Holy See is the sovereign of Vatican City and it is an absolute monarchy under the Pope. Italy is the country which is conditioned more than any other by the presence of the Church: political, social and economic choices, as well as everything else in Italy, are deeply influenced by the Church.

The pedophilia scandal that involved the Catholic clergy in the entire world didn’t really blow up in Italy. In this exclusive documentary, we explore the darkest secrets inside the Vatican.

We witness the prevailing culture of secrecy and fear that leads Catholic bishops to place the interests of the Vatican Church ahead of the safety of children. We see that even the most vulnerable of children are not spared. Justice can never be fully carried out for the victims; the only hope that remains is that no child will ever again be abused within the boundaries of the church.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
