I'm glad the catholic church can finally come to terms with this and admit that the situation was, at times, handled poorly. It's a real time of growth. Imagine the faces on the rape victims. This must be a huge step.
They must be thinking, "Oh, I don't mind anymore that I was raped and that my dignity and life were taken from me by force. I don't mind anymore that one person fucked up any personal relationships I might have. I don't mind that I feel like killing myself every day. I don't mind having to explain to my kids what happened to me and how to resist it. It is perfectly fine now that the pope has swallowed his pride and admitted that the entire situation was sometimes mistreated. That totally makes up for it."
