Pope meets with clergy sex abuse survivors in Philadelphia

Pope Francis has met with victims of clergy sexual abuse, he told to bishops in Philadelphia on Sunday. He promised to maintain “careful oversight” over the scandal that rocked the Catholic Church in 2002. “God weeps for sexual abuse of children,” the pontiff said, as quoted by Reuters. “Youth are protected and … all responsible will be held accountable.” Nearly 100,000 children in the US may have fallen victims to clerical sex abuse, according to the data, presented at a Vatican conference in 2012.
