French bishops devote day of prayer for sex-abuse victims
November 07, 2016
The Catholic bishops of France are devoting themselves to fasting and prayer on November 7 for sex-abuse victims.
At a regular meeting of the episcopal conference, being held at Lourdes, the bishops spent the day in prayer “for forgiveness for the sins committed by members of the clergy.”
In a homily at morning Mass, Bishop Lucien Crepy of Le Puy-en-Velay, who chairs the French bishops’ committee on abuse, exhorts his brother bishops to “fight against scandalous and criminal actions affecting the little ones.”
