CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis’s March 2023 prayer intention is for victims of abuse. Commenting on the intention, the Pope said that “asking for forgiveness is necessary, but it is not enough.”

“Asking for forgiveness is good for the victims, but they are the ones who have to be ‘at the center’ of everything,” he continued. “Their pain and their psychological wounds can begin to heal if they find answers —if there are concrete actions to repair the horrors they have suffered and to prevent them from happening again.”
