Pope admits making mistakeEarlier on April 8, in a moving letter to the Chilean bishops, following the fact-finding mission by Archbishop Scicluna, the Pope admitted having made "serious mistakes in the assessment and perception of the situation, especially due to the lack of truthful and balanced information", regarding the clerical sex abuse in Chile.

"Firstly, we want to share our pain and shame", said Bishop Fernando Ramos, a spokesman for the Chilean delegation.

"It does not depend on us".

Chile's Catholic bishops said Monday (local time) they were open to whatever Pope Francis proposes to overhaul the Chilean church, including the removal of bishops, reforms of seminaries and paying financial reparation to victims of a clergy sex abuse and cover-up scandal.

During the meetings with the Chilean bishops next week, Francis will be accompanied by Cardinal Marc Ouellet, the head of the Vatican's bishops' office who is responsible for vetting new bishops and investigating complicit ones.

The priest who summarized the findings at the evening meeting told the pope that a lack of education in the faith was identified by numerous groups; that lack was seen regarding basic church teachings but also regarding how the Gospel and its values could be brought to bear on modern problems.

Speaking on a passage in Acts where the Apostle Paul is discerning when to leave his flock in the care of others, the Pope said: "when I read this, I think of myself".
