Pope Francis visit an Irish shrine and held a giant mass in Dublin today.
Pope Francis addressed on abuse and asked for forgiveness. But for many, it wasn’t enough. Mary our Mother is also the Mother of the Church, and it is to her that we commend today the journey of God’s faithful people on this emerald isle.”
The Pope spoke in front of some hundred ks people in Phoenix Park, as abuse victims and their supporters gather in a “Stand for Truth” rally in the city centre to demand justice.
Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar has urged the pope to take action against abuses and ensure justice for victims worldwide. The Pope said, inaction over these repellent crimes has rightly given rise to outrage, and remains a source of pain and shame for the Catholic community.
