Archbishop of Washington prostrates himself at mass for abuse victimsCardinal Donald Wuerl, the archbishop of Washington who was blamed for not doing enough to deal with pedophile priests in Pennsylvania, prostrated himself Friday in a sign of repentance at a mass dedicated to victims of abuse. "Our prayers are for those who were assaulted by serious abuse of the clergy and the further indignity of an inadequate response," said Wuerl, who has said he plans to travel to Rome in the near future to meet with Pope Francis to discuss his resignation. This action on my part is an essential aspect of the healing so that this archdiocesan Church we all love can move forward," he wrote in a letter to the priests of Washington.
