Pope Francis thinking of moment to say farewell


Pope Francis has said retired Pope Benedict XVI "opened a door" to future popes by resigning.

According to the communiqué, Pope Francis will share with the Chilean bishops his conclusions on the investigation carried out by Charles Scicluna and Jordi, which contains several oral and written testimonies that he has received over the past few weeks.

The three Chilean abuse survivors who met Pope Francis at the Vatican April 27-29 accused the cardinal of covering up the abuse committed by Father Fernando Karadima, who in 2011 was found guilty by a Vatican tribunal and sentenced to a life of prayer and penance.

Pope Francis said Tuesday he was thinking of "the moment in which I will have to say farewell".

"When I read this, I think about myself...because I am a bishop and I must take my leave and step down", Francis said.

Specifically, Taiwan , " Southern Tibet ", and the South China Sea were omitted from the map. It was unclear if the shirts in all of Gap's markets worldwide would also be destroyed.

Victims say Barros had knowledge of the abuse but did nothing to stop it.

A Vatican statement said that at the start of the meeting, the pope handed each bishop a list of themes on which they should meditate and pray before the start of the next encounter Wednesday.

As far as I am concern, I admit, and I want you to convey it faithfully, that I have made serious mistakes of assessment and perception on the situation, especially due to a lack of truthful and balanced information, he underlined.

Pope Francis told them the process of identifying the problems had two benefits: a recognition of "the truth about our condition as being in need, sick", but, at the same time, a recognition that even if people have failed, God is still present and is calling his people to come together and to move forward. "And I believe that the worst temptation of all is to keep dwelling on our own discouragement, '" he said, quoting the 1987 text, before adding, "Yes, dwelling on how disheartened we are". "May the lord give the grace to all of us to be able to take our leave this way, with this spirit and strength", he said.

Francis noted that Paul entrusted the elders of the Church of Ephesus to God, knowing the Lord will take care of them.
