Private sex meeting
Officials say there will be three themes: responsibility, accountability, and transparency.

Some observers have high expectations for change from the meeting, but others think the church is nowhere near enacting needed reforms. Pope, the professor, said in a telephone interview that “significant progress” was made in combating the problem.■ Pope Francis sparked outrage in January 2018 when he defended a bishop in Chile who was accused of protecting a pedophile priest. ‘‘I was part of the problem,’’ he told a Chilean abuse survivor in a private meeting at the Vatican in June.■ A Pennsylvania grand jury report released in August found that church leaders in Pennsylvania covered up sexual abuse by 300 priests.
