"What can be done to actually solve the problem?"

To start, open up the RC books up to scrutiny.

Have an open investigation on who knew what in the RC organization, who covered up what and why.

Initiate a major arms length investigation on what happened, including recommendations for change.

Sack, or demote those who allowed it to happen and continue to happen from positions of authority.

Put measures in place in all RC churches to limit the liklihood of reoccurance in RC churches in all countries.

Accept responsibility and initiate arms length measures to see that those who were abused are helped and healed.

Reach out to those who were abused, and never reported it.

Link with representatives of (and organizations) representing the abused to seek ideas for change.

Stop making excuses, or attempting to belittle these crimes.
