Thank you Pope Francis!
Sometimes when the right person goes off-script it can change the world. One person can make the world a better place by acknowledging an injustice. Be Brave!
Pope Francis in off-script child sex abuse remarks: “God weeps.”
Pope Francis just went off script unexpectedly to address child sex abuse in the church:
It continues to be on my mind that people who had the responsibility to take care of these tender ones [children] violated that trust and caused them great pain.
God weeps for the sexual abuse of children. These cannot be maintained in secret, and I commit to a careful oversight to ensure that youth are protected and all responsible will be held accountable.
Those who have survived this abuse have become true heralds of mercy – humbly, we owe each of them our gratitude for their great value as they have had to suffer this terrible abuse sexual abuse of minors.
