In this extended edition of Perspectives Daily, we continue with our highlight coverage of the Vatican's Summit on the Protection of Minors in the Church.

Here are the stories we bring you on today's episode:

    1. A vigil for survivors of clerical abuse was held outside the walls of the Vatican yesterday. CNS brings us a quick look inside that event.
    2. Cardinal Oswald Gracias kicked off the interventions for the day, speaking to the day's overall theme of "accountability".
    3. Cardinal Blase Cupich spoke next, concluding his speech with 13 concrete points he feels should be guiding standards for any procedures put in place following this event.
    4. Undersecretary for the Dicastery for the Laity, Family, and Life, Dr. Linda Ghisoni, ended the day's proceedings with a talk centred around the idea of "communio", and also spoke about concrete actions to take, such as forming national or regional advisory boards for reviewing abuse allegations.
Be sure to check in with us again on Monday for our full wrap-up of coverage on the Summit on the Protection of Minors in the Church, which concludes on Sunday.
