Victims of sexual abuse by priests want action from the Pope, rather than multiple apologies and nothing concrete.
“He could’ve said it today; he should’ve said it today: That from now on, any priest who has sexually assaulted a child will not be a priest,” [of the U.S.-based Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP)] said. “There are children who are at risk right now, around the globe. There are pedophile priests in parishes, in ministries, that bishops and archbishops know about.”
“That is much, much more important than an apology.”
