An open letter to the new pope

Your holiness,

Congratulations on being elected.

You now have a historic opportunity to make your pontificate the one that finally deals with the greatest sin. The abuse of children. There has to be a real effort to redeem the church by naming and shaming the priests who abuse children and the bishops who cover this up.

I pray that you will deal swiftly with this. As a survivor of abuse not by a priest. These survivors deserve justice and the right to be heard so healing can begin.


Ed shearer.
