Abuse victim in Malta sees Pope Benedict as a saint

Catholic World News - April 23, 2010

In an emotional interview with Vatican journalist Andrea Tornielli of Il Giornale, an abuse victim who met with Pope Benedict XVI during the Pontiff's visit to Malta said that the session had restored his faith.

"I did not have any faith in priests. Now, after this moving experience, I have hope again," said Joseph Magro. "You people in Italy have a saint. Do you realize that? You have a saint!"
