French cardinal admits mistakes in child sex abuse cases / Associated Press on Cruxnow.com

A French cardinal said his diocese has made ‘some mistakes’ in the management and nomination of certain priests amid allegations that he had covered up child sex abuse cases.

“Cardinal Philippe Barbarin stressed the ‘importance’ for the victims ‘to see their right to truth and justice recognized’ in a statement issued Monday (Apr. 25) following a meeting on the issue with 220 priests from the Lyon region.

“Barbarin, the archbishop of Lyon and one of the highest-ranking church officials in France, is among six church officials targeted by complaints for not reporting child sex abuse cases to judicial authorities.”
