Expressing regret and sorrow for the many Christians (of all affiliated flavors) not being entirely Christlike at a time when such radical selflessness was needed, is not exactly the specific apology that you and Hatuey (and the media) are claiming it is. Catholic repentance also is not necessarily repentance for one's own errors--one can offer penance for others in reparation for wrongs committed anywhere by anyone.At the end of this Millennium the Catholic Church desires to express her deep sorrow for the failures of her sons and daughters in every age. This is an act of repentance (teshuva), since, as members of the Church, we are linked to the sins as well as the merits of all her children.
