"Abuse Crisis": Francis Kneels In Front of the Media

Pope Francis wrote an eight page letter (below) to the US bishops who gathered this week for a retreat at Mundelein seminary, Illinois.

He called the retreat a necessary step in dealing with the alleged abuse crisis, blaming the US bishops for a crisis of credibility that “you” are experiencing as a Church.

Losing any sense for measure, he added, “We know that, given the seriousness of the situation, no response or approach seems adequate” - which would mean that nothing adequate can be done against abuses.

Francis, who himself hushed up the Cardinal McCarrick abuses, goes on claiming that “the Church's credibility has been seriously undercut and diminished by these sins and crimes, but even more by the efforts made to deny or conceal them".

The Church's credibility was seriously undercut by the popes' and bishops' betrayal of the Faith and Liturgy since Second Vatican Council.

Is Francis planning on making copies of his letter for the bishops of Germany, Ireland, Spain, France, etc.?
I listen to nothing of what Francis says. I only look at his actions

Pope Francis says that he wanted to go on retreat with the US Bishops, but "despite best efforts" his physical presence in Chicago wasn't possible.

Only since Vatican II the Church has needed "running", before that we were led by Tradition.

"The Church's credibility was seriously undercut by the popes' and bishops' betrayal of the Faith and Liturgy since Second Vatican Council." Amen.
