Tonight when the pope retires the Catholic Church comes to an important crossroads. A chance to make moves to healing the wrongs that the church are responsible for. A chance to say sorry and to act to help survivors of abuse. A chance move forward and show that they are truly sorry for these crimes.
Over the last few days I have pondered one question. What would Jesus do? Jesus would never have accepted these crimes by his church and in his name.
As a survivor of abuse, NOT BY A PRIEST. I can empathise with these survivors.
A time for reelection and action to make reckon pence for what happened.
God bless Pope Benedict XVI.
