On his visit to Valletta, Malta Pope Benedict XVI met with a group of clerical sex-abuse victims promising them that the Catholic Church would seek justice for pedophile priests and work to protect young people from abuse Sunday, CBC news reported.
The victims, who were in their 30s and 40s met with the pontiff and prayed together and discussed ways in which the church could protect the youth, CBC said.
The vatican has no details on exactly how they plan on implementing security measures into the church, Kare 11 said.
"Everybody was crying," Joseph Magro, 38, told Associated Press, in Kare 11. "I told him my name was Joseph, and he had tears in his eyes."
