    I'll believe he cares when he sends a letter to every Catholic bishop & priest. A very simple instruction. Which he can give since he is their leader.

    Everyone who committed abuse go directly to the local cops where the crime happened and confess, fully and completely to any & all crimes.
    Everyone who is aware of such crimes. Either because of confession by the guilty or investigations inside the church. You have a responsibility to keep those secrets and that is fine. You don't need to go to the cops with what you know. What you need to do is go to those who committed those crimes and encourage them to confess. Put the entire weight of your authority behind forcing them to do the right thing.

    That will never happen, so same old same old.
