The Maltese Archbishop Charles Scicluna, who is well-respected for his work to stop sexual abuse and paedophilia from members of the clerical staff, has been asked to join the next plenary meeting of the Polish Bishops' Conference, Polish media has reported.

After the Do Not Be Afraid report and his success in Chile, which led 32 church members to submit their resignation to the pope (and three to be accepted), Scicluna will now be attending the Episcopate Conference.
