Pope Benedict XVI has criticized US bishops for their handling of child sex scandals, saying their response to the crisis had sometimes been very poor.
He laid part of the blame for the crisis, of which he feels “deeply ashamed”, on a breakdown in US values. On his first official US visit, the Pope said he hoped the “time of trial” would help start a Church purification.
On Thursday, the German Pontiff is due to celebrate Mass for 45,000 people at a new Washington baseball stadium. On Wednesday morning, thousands of guests welcomed the Pope, who was 81 on Wednesday, to his first White House meeting with President George W Bush.
What’s the matter; he feels that he has paid too much? I mean with all these cases involving catholic priests it seems like the American bishop is Michael Jackson and the catholic cathedral inside the Neverland!!!
