Pope meets quietly with abuse victims in Germany
CWN - 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.
