Leader of Irish Christian Brothers appeals for forgiveness
CWN - June 19, 2009
The head of the Irish Christian Brothers, the congregation most heavily criticized by a commission report on a history of abuse in Ireland's Church-run institutions, has encouraged members of the order to ask for forgiveness. “It is all too easy to dismiss the report as exaggeration, as not telling the whole truth," said Brother Philip Pinto. "To do so is to evade the awful truth presented to us. This is our sin and all of us are guilty.”
