news has been following one family as a journey across borders. welcome to the program my mary and i have been steam pope francis is in dublin for the first papal trip to ireland in nearly forty years the pontiff is visiting a country that was once staunchly catholic bonte has since undergone vast social change is visit comes as the church faces renew pressure to tackle sex abuse within its ranks damning new revelations have raised serious doubts over the leadership of senior cardinals and bishops who are accused of protecting predatory priests he has told an audience of dublin castle but he shares the shame and pain of the church's failure to tackle abuse from both who could be going on should i cannot fail to acknowledge the grapes. scandal caused in ireland. by the abuse of young people by
5:02 pm
members of the church were given responsibility for their protection and education it is. the fundamental video of the failure of church authorities bishops religious leaders priests and others to adequately address these repugnant crimes with he has rightly led to outrage them in sushi and it remains a source of pain and shame for the catholic community. but. i share in feeling that pain and shame and evil with the sentiment. well to talk more about the pope's visit to ireland i'm joined in studio by dealings religious affairs correspondent martin so martin we just heard some emotional words from the pope and yet many victims say they're looking for more than just words so how much do you think the pope's visit can actually help the vatican turn a corner on this issue of clerical abuse well i think that at this point it's quite
5:03 pm
clear that words will not do you know we have we heard words of contrition coming from the vatican for many years and certainly since the pennsylvania report of we going to have to go we have seen the boat addressing the issue mostly talking about contrition and talking about you know penance and so you know trusting and asking for prayer and all this is fine and good however disserve very serious crimes and i think bad generally public opinion it's no turning that for the period i read enough making demands for a particular policy so breyer will no longer do this point the question is how is it that the vatican is going to deal with greitens and you know they're very particular to the months which is essentially they need to produce policy all right so they need to take action and someone else who's calling for that was ireland's prime minister who spoke earlier let's listen to
5:04 pm
a clip of that. holy father we ask that you use your office and influence to ensure that this is done here in our land and also around the world. in recent weeks we've all this into the heartbreaking stories from pennsylvania of the unspeakable crimes perpetrated by people within the church and then obscure it to protect the institution. it's a story that was all too tragically familiar to those of us here in ireland. as you said there can only be zero tolerance for those who abuse children are facilitate that abuse. and he was now ensure that from words flow actions. all right so that was the prime minister of ireland saying is there a tolerance for sex abuse and calling for concrete actions on the part of the church but is it even possible to resolve this abuse scandal within the church without bringing in external authorities and if yes then who would those
5:05 pm
authorities even be i mean there are three are yes that have to be addressed one is redress for the victims the second one is stopping abuse that might still you know be committed us we're talking and then the third one which really in a sense is the biggest one is a question of a cover up i mean we have heard from victims and we know from the church itself moving suspected perpetrators from one day offices to another and sometimes from you know europe to a free car europe to the us or europe to kind of that so i mean moving people in a way that they could actually not be prosecuted and this means that of course the vatican has a lot of information this is the information the concrete lead has to be made available this is really the question now there is the change perhaps subtle but very very telling for those who actually follow this story which is that the bowl or less we're going to have to stop referring to these things as since they actually have started talking about crimes and eve it is official that the vatican
5:06 pm
recognizes. these things s. crimes then of course they are the mandate to bring in national authorities this is the demand that the irish prime minister is making and this is by and large the man that most of the international community including the un governments and so on are making this external pressure is not only burden to solve the issue but it's also important so that i think people inside the vatican that are reformists can rely on external voices i mean not just on their own muscle power inside the walls of the vatican well martin as we've been talking about also this is been going on for years if not decades within the church. what can be done to ensure that now finally the church leaders are actually prepared to allow authorities to get involved to submit all of these documents and all of the evidence what will push them to do this there is very little that can be done i mean in the sense this is really the purview of the pope i mean you have zero lows and very vicious
5:07 pm
prosecutors around the world i mean she lived and now there is a prosecutor that has been demanding the vatican turn in turn in documents that ultimately that authority remains with the pope so it is really in the pope's hands to in some sense change the politics and really produce it vertical and produce a ball you see i mean bring mind that in six years with all the goodwill and all the talk there is very little to show for i mean no policy is in place that actually can help either a sewage solve the crimes or actually redress them. religious affairs correspondent many thanks indeed my dear friends. well turning to venezuela now where an estimated two million people have left the country in recent years fleeing food shortages poverty and economic chaos united nations officials are now saying the region is heading towards what they describe as a crisis moment similar to the one europe saw in mediterranean back in twenty
