“I acknowledge once more the suffering endured by many minors due to sexual abuse, the abuse of power and the abuse of conscience perpetrated by a significant number of clerics and consecrated persons.
“Looking back to the past, no effort to beg pardon and to seek to repair the harm done will ever be sufficient. Looking ahead to the future, no effort must be spared to create a culture able to prevent such situations from happening, but also to prevent the possibility of their being covered up and perpetuated.”
God please bring your care and consolation to the many children who were criminally violated…may these unjust aggressors be brought to justice. May your Almighty mercy and forgiveness be provided at this time of crisis to all hurting, including our many faithful parishioners, and holy priests and Bishops who are desperately trying to shepherd us.
God be with us and with our nextgen Catholics…
