The Irish prime Minister calls for a response to sexual abuse and the Pope expresses his "pain" and "shyness".

Dublin _ Agencies

Irish Prime Minister Liu Farabkar on Saturday called on Pope Francis to act to bring justice to victims of sexual abuse around the world, at a time when the great ink, who is on a historic visit to Ireland, expressed "pain" and "shyness" over those excesses.

Faradkar, like me, has been transformed into a symbol of the culture of emancipation in his country, and Pope Francis has demanded in a stern speech "to associate words with deeds" for victims of sexual abuse.

In front of crowds assembled at the Dublin Palace, Farakkar, along with Pope Francis, said that the multiple scandals in Ireland "tarnished our state, our society and the church."

"We have often seen judgments, cruelty and brutality," the Irish prime Minister said. People kept in dark corners, behind closed doors, did not hear their cries. "

"There is much work to be done to bring justice, truth and healing to the victims," he said. Holiness the Pope, I ask you to use your position and authority to ensure that this is done here in Ireland and in the World  ".

In return, Pope Francis said that the failure of the ecclesiastical authorities to address these heinous crimes "provoked the right to anger, and still causes pain and shame to the followers of Catholicism."

Under a clear sky, the pope landed at 09:26 GMT in Dublin, where he was received by Foreign Minister Simon Coveni, accompanied by his children, who gave him a bouquet of white and yellow roses in the colours of the Vatican flag.

Pope Francis's visit to Ireland is the first to have greater ink since 1979 when Pope John Paul II addressed 1.5 million people who had gathered to be blessed.

Hundreds of thousands of crowds are expected to be formed during Pope Francis Tour in Dublin and Mayo Province in the far west of the country on the second day of his visit to Ireland.

Believers rallied along the path of the great ink procession carrying banners written on them  "We love Pope" and "Pope Francis Love You together forever."

"The church has undergone many changes in recent years in many respects, it is the way of the holiness of the pope to support us," she said.

Ireland has undergone many changes, and the new generation has overthrown tradition by electing the first Prime minister in the country's history and agreeing to gay marriage and abortion legislation in a development that could not have been imagined.

In his speech, the pope touched on abortion legislation, asking, "is the growing culture of waste increased our indifference towards the poor and the most vulnerable in our human family, including embryos?".

Pope Francis's 24th trip comes abroad a week after he uncovered information about the past sexual excesses committed by more than 300 priests in the state of Pennsylvania, which have reached over 1,000 children since the 1950s.

The Pope sent an unprecedented message to the nearly 1.3 billion Catholics in the world, pledging to prevent the recurrence of "atrocities" but acknowledged that all efforts "will not be enough to repair the damage that has occurred."

Ireland has seen many violations. Investigations of the connivance of bishops have shown the excesses of hundreds of priests over decades.

Former Irish president Marie Mcalisi revealed in the August (August) that she had lodged an appeal against the Vatican's withholding in 2003 of ecclesiastical documents on official investigations.

Pope Francis visits Ireland to conclude the "World Meeting of Families", which is organized every three years.

On Saturday, the pope is touring Dublin to visit a homeless shelter before taking part in the "World Meeting for Families", where he will speak at the Crook Park stadium.

The pope will also meet in Ireland as victims of sexual assault.

On Sunday, he will greet the closing event at the Phoenix Park in Dublin. This mass is expected to bring about half a million believers.

The mass will coincide with a demonstration of the victims of the excesses of clerics and their supporters titled "Stop for the truth."

Richard Duffy, 31, resident in Dublin, told AFP he was opposed to the visit, saying "I am puzzled by the celebration of his coming here," adding "they still deny and refuse to confess any guilt."

In the town of Tham in the west of the country, a candlelight evening will be held in memory of the victims of Mather and Bibi institutions charged with punishing women who have been pregnant without marriage.

Irish Catholic institutions are accused of having committed large-scale violations to decades.

In an indication of the severity of the violations, more than 14,000 and 500 persons applied to a programme administered by the Irish Government for compensation for violations within juvenile centres run by religious associations.
