(-ONLY VIDEO-) The Pope wished a Merry Christmas to the Vatican Curia and recalled the highlights of the past year in 2010. He spoke about the cases of sexual abuse by priests, the Synod for the Middle East, and his trip to the UK.
“We should accept this humiliation as an exhortation to the truth and a call towards renewal. Only the truth saves. We must ask ourselves what we can do to repair as much as possible the injustice that was committed. We must ask what was wrong with our message, our way of being a Christian, so that such a thing could have happened. We must face this with a new resolution of faith and goodness. We must be able to do penance. We should strive as much as possible in preparation for the priesthood so that something like this can not happen again.”
