Pope meets quietly with abuse victims in Germany
September 23, 2011
Pope Benedict XVI met with victims of sexual abuse on Friday, September 23, during the 2nd day of his visit to Germany.
Following what has become a pattern in his foreign travels, the Pope met with the victims quietly, without prior notice; the afternoon meeting was not listed on the schedule for the Pope’s 4-day visit.
Participants at the meeting reported that the Pontiff was visibly moved by hearing the experiences of the victims.
