((Pope John Paul ll has broken a long silence on sexual abuse problems tearing through the Catholic church. In his annual letter to priests the pontiff wrote.

(graphic)

"...we are personally and profoundly afflicted by the sins of some of our brothers." He added "the Church shows her concern for the victims and strives to respond in truth and justice to each of the painful situations.."
In recent months hundreds of U-S priests have been accused of sexually molesting boys.

And in a new poll of American Catholics, twenty percent said priests in their diocese have been accused of child molestation. Only two out of three Catholics now have confidence in their church leaders.
STANDUP: And some of those same leaders have been accused of turning a blind eye for to the abuse for generations.
Narr: Cardinal Bernard Law of Boston has been criticized for failing to take action against defrocked priest John Geoghan who was recently convicted of molestation charges and faces even more.
