Pope says 'sorry' for Irish church abuse
.(CNN) -- Pope Benedict XVI said Saturday he is "truly sorry" for the abuse suffered by victims at the hands of Catholic priests in Ireland.
The pope directly addressed the church abuse crisis that has rocked the Irish Catholic Church in an 18-page letter, which was made public Saturday. It is expected to be read in churches across Ireland on Sunday.
"I have been deeply disturbed by the information which has come to light regarding the abuse of children and vulnerable young people by members of the church in Ireland, particularly by priests and religious," the pope wrote

At least there is beggining to be more admission of these abuses by the church. Hopefully now that the situation can be talked about openly in the next few years, it can be iradicated once and for all.
