Pope vows justice against abusers

By Courtney Lane - bio | email

Pope Benedict has taken a significant step forward, pledging the Catholic Church will do everything it can to bring justice to those responsible for sexual abuse.

In the past, the Pope has been criticized for not taking enough action.

Just before his 5th Anniversary, Pope Benedict met with Maltese men who say as boys they were abused by four priests.

He expressed shame and sorrow and vowed the church will seek justice against abusers.
