Former Pope Asks for Forgiveness for Handling of Sex Abuse Cases - Admits No Wrongdoing


What Happened:

  • On Tuesday, Retired Pope Benedict XVI asked forgiveness for his handling of sexual abuse cases involving the clergy.

  • Benedict, now 94, was responding to a report from a German law firm that is investigating sexual abuse cases handled in the Munich archdiocese from 1945 and 2019.

  • The Pope did not admit to any wrongdoing in his statement. Said Benedict's lawyers, "As an archbishop, Cardinal Ratzinger was not involved in any cover-up of acts of abuse."
