The Vatican said Tuesday an indictment was also being sought for the former rector of the Vatican’s St. Pius X youth seminary, who is accused of aiding and abetting the crime. The scandal at the Holy See’s own youth seminary is particularly grave, given that the alleged misconduct occurred inside the Vatican’s own walls and was covered up for years until it was exposed by Italian journalists in 2017.
