10:02 pm
traveling to the stadium. well pope francis said that he shares the shame and pain of the church's failure to tackle abuse here's will. pope francis arrived in dublin knowing the first papal visit to ireland in nearly forty years would be overshadowed by the scandal over sex abuse by predatory priests the very presence of the pope would once have electrified the whole country but social changes and the sex revelations mean the atmosphere is now much more muted the ceremonial greeting from islands president michael higgins and then it was down to business pope francis was forthright church members who should have protected young people had instead abused them. the fundamental video the failure of church authorities bishops religious leaders priests and others to adequately address these repugnant crimes which he has rightly led to outrage. sushi's and it
10:03 pm
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. protesters gathered in central dublin in solidarity with victims of clerical abuse there is a great momentum that is being led out of ireland it really challenging the church's behavior and challenging the corruption trial should not be returned within the catholic population from simply what will probably say to the public. option to want it would. be. despite the sex abuse scandal rocking the catholic church the pontiff still has huge support dublin is lined the streets to give the pope an enthusiastic welcome as he was driven to st
10:04 pm
mary's cathedral to pless newlywed couples. well i'm joined here in studio by good abuse religious affairs correspondent martin good to see you so we've had the pope give a very emotional speech there but also very passionate words full of victims and survivors who were saying that it simply was not enough to what extent do you think the pope's visit can help turn a corner on the issue of clerical abuse i don't think the visit actually can do much if anything i think that the visit is actually quite counterproductive but they could not really it's something that's been planned for three years so it's not something that they could get out of the program instead. where to stage in the element in which the only thing that would really shed any sort of would a sewage any of the critics and brutally help along that survived. and victims is essentially to really put in place a protocol and the protocol would have to include turning every then send files to national authorities this is evidently something that he cannot do overnight he's
10:05 pm
been in his position for six years and the fact is that we have seen very very little developments in their reaction of the serial tolerance of which they have spoken extensively and i wanted to point out that you know in two thousand and ten benedict then presented a letter of apology to the nation of our land for the abuse committed by the church now we are essentially eight years later almost nine years later and apologies a century have run their course and really they have not produced much so you're talking about changing the political within the catholic church and the question comes up is it possible to resolve this issue without having external authorities and if so who then does the church as the i think it's very clear that the church by itself can actually not take care of this particular business this is something that is way too entrenched it involves way too many people the institution is too broad and it has and i think it's very important that we point out that this is not
10:06 pm
just a sexual abuse scandal this actually an illicit association i mean essentially a cover up a massive cover up operation which helped to farther promote sexual abuse so to be able to deal with this goal of an issue it's very clear that international justice systems and make a nice homes including the un with things like the right of children i mean concerning you know treaties on the right of children have to be brought in also because inside the church there is a division i mean reformists are fighting it out with people that don't want to move anything and this means actually that external help could actually push the reformist along and yet this is not the first time that the conversation of abuse within the church is taking place what will it take to create any form of progress . it's an excellent question it's very difficult to answer i mean mainly because there are so many cards inside the vatican and there are so many parts that are essentially opposed to each other that it's not really just the church coming forth
10:07 pm
with a solution but he's actually the church essentially in its internal construction being able to resolve together that they were going to come up with the policy it's quite clear that they have not been able to do that so now it's probably time for prosecutors around the world to start trying to push the vatican to turn these documents and bring essentially criminals to justice all right and very quickly do you think that the pope will address the issue of. his speech that he expected i think he will address said i think that what we should all be paying close attention to is his trip back to rome in the airplane usually with journalists that's when we hear most of the news that come out of the vatican and most of the ones that really make headlines thank you so much for your life pleasure. injure effigies in bangladesh have been marking one year since the start of the myanmar army crackdown that forced them to leave their homes protesters marched through the courts is bizarre region where hundreds of thousands are living in makeshift camps and maher says it's ready to take back the refugees but there's
