Pope Francis apologized for sexual abuses committed by priests.
“'I feel compelled to take personal responsibility for all the evil that some priests, many - many in number, (although) not in comparison with the totality - to assume personal responsibility and to ask forgiveness for the damage caused by the sexual abuse of the children,' he said.
'The church is aware of this damage,' he continued. 'We don't want to take a step back in dealing with this problem and the sanctions that must be imposed.” – Daily Mail UK
Is that enough for the kids who were victims of child sexual abuse? Will that be enough to satisfy anger and humiliation still burning in their mind? Issuing apology is a good start, but should not be an end in itself. Church should take firm action against all those individuals and institutions who either abused the kids or protected the culprits.
