Catholic Church says ‘sorry’ to abuse victims

The Catholic Church in Scotland has apologised to victims of "criminal and sinful" abuse.
Addressing the survivors of abuse, Archbishop Philip Tartaglia said: "We say sorry, we ask forgiveness".
An independent commission into allegations of sexual abuse had recommended that the Church address the wrongs of the past.
The review body, led by Dr Andrew McLellan, had been set up by Scottish bishops after a series of scandals including the resignation of Cardinal Keith O'Brien.
The apology was made to a congregation which had assembled for mass at St Andrew's Cathedral in Glasgow on Tuesday.

    This is indeed a touching video. It shows how deep the Catholic Church has fallen.

    What a pity that the Indian bishops have never yet thought of apologizing to the general public for the innumerable sex abuses its clergy are accused of and caught red-handed.
