When Benedict Meets With Victims
It is not yet clear if Pope Benedict XVI will meet with victims of clergy sex abuse during his visit to the UK. But, at the USCCB media blog, Sister Mary Ann Walsh has an excerpt from a forthcoming book on the Pope that she edited, that recounts what happened when Benedict met with the victims of clergy sex abuse during his 2008 visit to the U.S.
