Pope Francis on Wednesday admitted he made “grave errors” in judgment regarding a massive sex abuse scandal in Chile. In a letter written to Chile’s bishops, Francis said he was wrong to strongly defend Bishop Juan Barros—a protégé of notorious predator priest the Rev. Fernando Karadima—during a January visit to Chile. Karadima’s victims have long denounced Barros, claiming he witnessed the abuse and did nothing.
