The Buzz: Pope Benedict XVI met Sunday with a group of clerical sex-abuse victims and told them with tears in his eyes that the Catholic Church would seek justice for pedophile priests and implement "effective measures" to protect young people from abuse, the Vatican and victims said. Benedict expressed his "shame and sorrow" at the pain the men and their families suffered and prayed with them during the meeting at the Vatican's embassy in Malta, the Vatican said.


I'm having some trouble here. It's very easy to be all sad and contrite, even down to tears, when you've been caught, bit where was all this concern years and decades ago when the Pope was directly in a position to do something right and good?

Seems to me the contrition we're seeing is part of a bigger script.
