There are tens of thousands of Catholic Convents all over the world, and hundreds of thousands of Nuns.
It seems to me that Pope Francis should 'officially declare' that all Convents and all Nuns are availabe for little kids to go to to tell a Nun about any sexual abuse that the child had suffered at the hands of any Catholic Priest.
(1) Small children will feel far safer in talking to a (woman) Nun than to any Priest or any other man. The environment within any Catholic Church is bit very comforting for any child, especially ones in stress.
(2) This action will increase the importance of women in the Catholic Church by emphasizing the importance of Nuns.
(3) Many more young Catholic girls might become interested in becoming Nuns "becausw they would be socially important." (4) The Catholic bureaucracy would not be involved, so there would be no further concern about any offending Priests being transferred or otherwise 'covered up', The Nuns would not participate in such follow-ups regarding offending Priests, and the children and the public know that.
(5) The public, and especially Catholics, might see cause to become comfortaable with the Catholic Church due to this (highly publicized) program, which might stop the enormous numbers of Catholics from leaving the Church.
