The move will allow the Catholic Church to hand over documents related to sexual abuse cases to civil authorities. Branches of the church do that in many countries already, but the practice is not universal.

Abolishing what's called "pontifical secrecy" will also allow victims to be informed of the outcome of their cases at the Vatican.

The pope's special declaration, called a Rescript, does not change the privacy rules around reporting sexual abuse or Vatican trials of alleged abusers.

The declaration comes on Pope Francis' 83rd birthday.
