All around the world catholic priests and bishops have been accused of raping thousands of children over the last sixty to seventy years (and probably for centuries before that) and what does the pope say? He says the poor old rapists are being attacked by the devil - and it's a tragedy for them.
As for the children? Not a word.
'In these times, it seems like the Great Accuser has been unchained and is attacking bishops,' the Pope said
The Great Accuser is trying to uncover bishops’ sins in order to scandalise the people, Pope Francis has said.
In a homily at Casa Santa Marta on Tuesday morning, the Pope told bishops that they seem to be under attack from the devil.
The best way for bishops to fight this, he added, is by being men of prayer who remain close to the people and who have the humility to remember they were chosen by God, Vatican News reports.
