Mexico opens centre for paedophile priests

Emmaus House to offer spiritual rehabilitation, reflection

(ANSA) - Mexico City, April 10 - A centre offering support and rehabilitation to paedophile priests has opened in the diocese of Saltillo in northern Mexico, diocesan sources said Thursday.
    Emmaus House will help priests tackle the "moral, spiritual and psychological crises" at the root of "specific problems", the diocese said. The centre is under the direction of monsignor Raul Vera, bishop of Cohauila, a human-rights activist and well-known exponent of liberation theology. It will offer support to up to 20 priests at a time from Mexico and the United States, who will follow a program of "spiritual reflection and rehabilitation" for between three and five months. A similar structure that opened recently in Monterrey, also in northern Mexico, has so far offered support to 43 priests.
