Bishop Michael Burbidge offers the following statement in support of the Holy Father’s powerful words:

"Although current efforts do not repair the damage caused previously, the Church continues to serve as a place for spiritual and emotional healing.

It is my prayer that those who were victimized by clergy, or anyone directly associated with the Catholic Church, would find God’s peace and know that we are deeply sorry for what occurred. Abuse of any kind has no place in society...." read more: http://www.dioceseofraleigh.org/news/view.aspx?id=2443
