How apt it is that numerous groups plan to protest when Pope Benedict arrives tomorrow for a visit to Jolly Olde England.
In recent days, news squibs have crawled across the bottom of my screen on various all-news channels reporting first that Belgian authorities are currently dealing with more than 300 cases of alleged child sexual abuse at the hands of Roman Catholic priests and second that Pope Benedict has stated that he “feels the victims’ pain.”
It is only the latest in a string of instances over the past couple of years when the pope has had to “feel the pain” of victims of clerical child abuse suffered just about all over the world. In fact, he must be feeling the pain of so many people right now that one might think he is carrying the weight of the whole world on his shoulders.
