"This gift given by the Circus - who with constancy, effort, and many sacrifices seek to create and offer beauty for themselves and others - will hopefully become for our poorest brothers and sisters an encouragement to overcome the bitterness and difficulties of life, which often seem insurmountable", the pope's office said in a statement. His Peru-based lawyer, Armando Lengua, has said he hasn't been in contact with Figari, saying he is unreachable in the Sodalitium prayer and retreat house in Rome. He now lives in a retirement home in Rome and is forbidden by a Vatican decree from returning to Peru. After that, the Vatican named a delegate, American Cardinal Joseph Tobin, to accompany Sodalitium as it reformed and then sanctioned Figari previous year. In a statement, it thanked Francis, pledged to cooperate fully with the new commissioner and said it would accept whatever was decided in the future. "It's not something that we can tie to a particular group".

Figari, 70, founded the movement in 1971 with the aim of transforming teenagers into "soldiers of Christ". "(Francis) is one of the great leaders, not just for young people inside the Catholic Church but for all young people."The first Latin American pope made his inaugural overseas trip as pontiff to Brazil four months after his election on March, 13, 2013. He liked to watch them "experience pain, discomfort and fear", and humiliated them to enhance his control over them, the report found.


The Vatican sanctioned him in 2006 after documentation about his abuse languished for decades in the same congregation that received the SCV complaints years ago and finally took over the society Wednesday. He'll be meeting victims of the disposed Chilean dictator Pinochet. "We believe it is important to make a call for peace and dialogue."Anticipating heavy traffic on curvy mountain roads, Argentina will keep border crossings open for longer and increase staffing.The province of Mendoza, site of one of the busiest crossings into Chile, said up to 800,000 Argentines could make the trip, though a foreign ministry spokeswoman said the number would be much lower.Many Argentines hold out hope the pope will soon return".

Burke was also asked if Francis would meet with abuse victims.
