Frances D'Emilio, Associated Press, skriver bl.a.:
Pope Francis has begged forgiveness from the victims of clergy sex abuse in his first meeting with several abuse survivors.
The Vatican quoted Francis as expressing personal "sorrow" in his homily at a private Mass with six victims Monday for the "sins and grave crimes" of clerical sex abuse against them.
Added the pope: "I beg your forgiveness, too, for the sins of omission on the part of Church leaders who did not respond adequately to reports of abuse made by family members, as well as by abuse victims themselves."
"This led to even greater suffering on the part of those who were abused and it endangered other minors who were at risk," the pope said, according to the English translation of his homily, delivered in Spanish.
