Pope Francis ‘Overwhelmed With Shame’ Following Meeting With Child Abuse Victims; Survivors Group Blasts ‘Feel Good’ Move

Pope Francis spent time on Sunday during the last day of his U.S. visit to meet with five adults who had been sexually abused by Roman Catholic clergy as children, declaring that he remains “overwhelmed with shame” at what was done to the victims. A survivor’s group has criticized the meeting as a “feel good, do nothing” gesture.
