Pastoral Letter to the Irish Church

Pastoral Letter of the Holy Father
Pope Benedict XVI to the Catholics of Ireland

1. Dear brothers and sisters of the Church in Ireland, it is with  great concern that I write to you as Pastor of the universal Church. Like yourselves, I have been deeply disturbed by the information which has come to light regarding the abuse of children and vulnerable young people by members of the Church in Ireland, particularly by priests and religious. I can only share in the dismay and the sense of betrayal that so many of you have experienced on learning of these sinful and criminal acts and the way Church authorities in Ireland dealt with them.
