"Ho visto il Papa piangere"
"I saw the Pope weep."
There is a story in Italian in La Stampa about the meeting of Pope Benedict XVI in Malta with victims of clerical abuse when they were children.
I teased out his quotes.
One of the outspoken victim, Lawrence Grech, said,
"I saw the Pope weep from emotion and I felt myself freed of a great weight."
"I did not expect excuses from the Pope but I say in him and in the bishop of Malta the humility of a Church which in that moment represented the entire problem of the modern Church."
"He put his hand on the head of each one of the participants in the meeting, blessing them. I felt myself freed and relieved of a great weight."
"For a long time I didn’t go to Mass any more and I had lost faith, but now I feel myself a convinced Catholic."
