Pope Francis updated Vatican City’s legal code in 2013 to criminalize sexual violence against children and just last month a Vatican tribunal convicted a former diplomat of possession and distribution of child pornography. But seven years after the Vatican ordered all bishops conferences around the world to develop written guidelines to prevent abuse, tend to victims, punish offenders and keep pedophiles out of the priesthood, the headquarters of the Catholic Church has no such policy.
