Whereas The Pope asks forgiveness for child sex abuse by priests
Francis’ statement echoes the apology made to the victims of abusive priests in Ireland by his predecessor Pope Benedict XVI

After initially rebutting allegations of covering up child abuse, Pope Francis makes a public apology about the 'evil' deeds of some Catholic priests
Pope Francis has made his first public plea for forgiveness for the “evil” committed by priests who molested children.
Using some of his strongest words yet on the Roman Catholic Church’s sexual abuse crisis, the Pope went off script to say: “I feel compelled to personally take on all the evil which some priests - quite a few in number, (although) obviously not compared to the number of all priests - to personally ask for forgiveness for the damage they have done for having sexually abused children.”
The Pope, who has faced criticism for his apparent lack of attention to the child abuse scandal within the Catholic Church, last month rebutted accusations made by the UN about senior prelates covering up for abusive priests.
“The Catholic Church is possibly the only public institution to have acted with transparency and responsibility,” he said in a newspaper interview at the time. “No one else has done more. Yet the Church is the only one to be attacked.”
Francis’s apology suggests a change of direction for the pope and follows the Vatican’s decision last month to name a former abuse victim, the Irish anti-abuse campaigner Marie Collins, to a new Vatican panel set up to study the issue.
“The Church is aware of this damage,” Francis said, quoted by Vatican Radio. “It is personal, moral damage carried out by men of the Church, and we will not take one step backward with regards to how we will deal with this problem, and the sanctions that must be imposed. On the contrary, we have to be even stronger. Because you cannot interfere with children.”
Francis’s statement echoes the apology made to the victims of abusive priests in Ireland by his predecessor Pope Benedict XVI. In a letter to victims in 2010, Benedict wrote, “You have suffered grievously and I am truly sorry, “ adding, “Your trust has been betrayed and your dignity has been violated... I openly express the shame and remorse that we all feel.”
