The Pope's Sex Abuse Apology: Benedict talks to bishops about the wounds of the sex abuse scandal. But many victims want an explicit apology—and action.

Date: April 17, 2008

QUOTE: Just how far the Roman Catholic Church must go to address the recent sex abuse scandals has—so far—overshadowed Pope Benedict XVI's first papal visit to the United States...In his speech Benedict told the bishops that "rightly, you attach priority to showing compassion and care to the victims" but stopped short of announcing a new system or changes in canon law that might lead to stricter controls, as some had hoped he would.
