Pope asks for forgiveness for child abuse by clergy
Pope Francis has asked for forgiveness for the evil committed by Roman Catholic priests who have sexually abused children. Speaking to members of an international Catholic organisation for the protection of children, the Pope said the church was conscious of the personal and moral damage done.
“To survivors of abuse of power, conscience and sexual abuse, recognizing what they have told me, I would like to put these crimes before the mercy of the Lord and ask forgiveness for them,” Francis told a mass attended by more than 100,000 people at Dublin’s Phoenix Park."
“We apologize for some members of the hierarchy who did not take care of these painful situations and kept silent," he said. The Pope used the penitential rite of the Mass to list the many abuses caused by clerical heads and on each occasion, asked for forgiveness.
“We ask forgiveness for the abuses in Ireland, abuses of power, of conscience, and sexual abuses perpetrated by members with roles of responsibility in the church. “In a special way, we ask pardon for all the abuses committed in various types of institutions run by males or female religious and by other members of the church, and we ask for forgiveness for those cases of manual work that so many young women and men were subjected to. We ask for forgiveness."
