Pope Francis in Ireland

I read that at least a few hundred Irish people have asked for free tickets to the Papal mass in Dublin but have no plans to attend, their empty seats a silent protest against the terrible victimization of young Irish women and babies and young boys by Irish clergy.

Something has to move this Pope beyond the repeated apologies and statements that abuse will no longer be tolerated to action. The survivors of abuse deserve more than mere words.
