Pope Francis asks forgiveness for priests who abused children

Pope Francis on Friday asked for forgiveness for priests who molested children, speaking about the Roman Catholic Church's sexual abuse crisis, Reuters said. "I feel compelled to personally take on all the evil which some priests, quite a few in number - obviously not compared to the number of all the priests - to personally ask for forgiveness for the damage they have done for having sexually abused children," he said. The Pope was speaking with members of a children"s rights group, Vatican Radio said.


This seems to suggest that the pope can take on the responsibility of all the priests who messed around with little boys. Why is that even necessary when the priests themselves have obviously asked God for forgiveness? Is that not enough anymore?

Once God has forgiven all the pedophile priests, is there any need for them to pay more retribution such as fines or jail time?
