Catholic Church: Pope Francis condemns abuse by clergy in Ireland

The Pontifex also met eight victims of decade-long abuse.

Investigation reports had revealed that thousands of children had been abused in Catholic institutions. According to reports, deeds were systematically hushed up.

Supporters of victims of abuse showed mselves disappointed in first reactions by words of pope. Colm O'Gorman, who was abused by a priest for years as a teenager, wrote on Twitter that pope had chance to acknowledge role of Vatican in abuse scandal. Instead, Francis ' speech would have focused on pain of Catholic community. "This is a great insult to all who are involved," O'Gorman wrote furr.
