Pope may apologize for sex abuse by priests: Vatican

Pope Benedict XVI may issue a mea culpa for clerical sex abuse at a June meeting of the world`s priests at the Vatican.



Vatican: Pope Benedict XVI may issue a mea culpa for clerical sex abuse at a June meeting of the world`s priests at the Vatican.

The June 9-11 summit, initially called to mark the end of the Vatican`s year of the priest, had already morphed into a pep rally for the pope as he came under fire amid a new wave of reports on sex abuse by clerics.

Now, according to the top Vatican official dealing with abuse, it`s possible that Benedict may issue some form of an apology at the meeting.
Cardinal William Levada, head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, told US public broadcaster PBS on Tuesday that he "wouldn`t be surprised" if the pontiff issues a mea culpa at the meeting.
