Pope Benedict XVI told reporters that he will work for “healing and reconciliation with the victims” of sexual abuse during his trip to Australia this week. While many victims appreciate his conciliatory remarks, they’re still clamoring for more. Said one activist, “He made some general remarks about regret to reporters and that’s not good enough. We want action, not words.” The Pope previously addressed the abuse during his trip to the States, but stopped short of an official apology. [POQ]
