“Sometimes the violence was committed by deeply disturbed persons or by those who had themselves been abused.  It was necessary to take action concerning them and to prevent them from continuing any form of ministry for which they were obviously not suitable. This was not always done properly and, once again, we apologize to the victims”.

Afterward, a teacher,  the superior of a religious order, a priest, a relative of the victim, a pilgrim and the Cardinal apologized and placed candles at the end of a cross.

Minutes later one of the victims, joined in the prayer, asking God to forgive the abusers. She also asked God to help her forgive the priest who abused her and those who protected him.
