The Pope’s reflection was part of a weekly catechesis series on spiritual discernment that he launched on Aug. 31.
Reséndiz is a Mexican national and former Legionary of Christ priest. In 2011 he was accused of committing sexual abuse between 2006 and 2008 in the congregation’s minor seminary in Gozzano, in Italy’s Novara Province.
The abuse was alleged to have taken place decades before in another diocese 'prior to his ordination to the priesthood.'
Behind every decision and litigation, in the end, one can glimpse a power struggle, whether it is big or small, systemic or personal.
The film includes video from the meeting with Pope Francis as well as never-before-seen footage from Francis’ papal inauguration on March 19, 2013.
