family as a journey across borders. thanks for joining us i'm marian evans dean pope francis has received a warm welcome from supporters in dublin during the first papal trip to ireland in nearly forty years thousands of people lined the streets of the irish capital to see the pontiff but his visit comes as a church faces renewed pressure to tackle sexual abuse within its ranks fresh revelations have raised concerns over the leadership of senior cardinals and bishops accused of protecting predatory priests pope francis said that he shares the shame and pain of the church's failure to tackle abuse. we'll talk more about the pope's visit to ireland from. in studio by dillies religious affairs
7:02 pm
correspondent martin so martin we just heard some emotional words from the pope and yet many victims say they're looking for more than just words so how much do you think the pope's visit can actually help the vatican turn a corner on this issue of clerical abuse well i think that at this point it's quite clear that words will not do you know we have we heard words from tradition coming from the vatican for many years and certainly since the pennsylvania report before we can have to go we have seen the boat addressing the issue mostly talking about contrition and talking about you know penance and so you know trusting and asking for prayer and all this is fine and good however these are very serious crimes and i think that generally public opinion is no turning that for the period i read and of making demands for a particular policy so breyer will no longer do this point the question is how is
7:03 pm
it that the vatican is going to deal with. and you know they're very particular the months which is essentially they need to produce policy all right so they need to take action and someone else who's calling for that was ireland's prime minister who spoke earlier let's listen to a clip of that. holy father we ask that you use your office and influence to ensure that this is done here in our land and also around the world. in recent weeks we've all listens to the heartbreaking stories from pennsylvania. the unspeakable crimes perpetrated by people within the church and then obscured to protect the institution. it's a story that was all too tragically familiar to those of us here in ireland. as you said there can only be zero tolerance for those who abuse children are facilitate that abuse. and he was now ensure that from words flow actions. all right
7:04 pm
so that was the prime minister of ireland saying is there a tolerance for sex abuse and calling for concrete actions on the part of the church but is it even possible to resolve this abuse scandal within the church without bringing in external authorities and if yes then who would those authorities even be i mean there are three are yes that have to be address one is redress for the victims the second one is stopping abuses might that might still you know be committed us we're talking and then the third one which really in a sense is the biggest one is a question of a cover up i mean we have heard from victims and we know from the church itself moving suspected perpetrators from one they also destroy another and sometimes from you know europe to a free car europe to the us or europe to the god of that so i mean moving people in a way that they could actually not be prosecuted and this means that of course the vatican has a lot of information this is the information that concrete lead has to be made
7:05 pm
available this is really the question now there is the change perhaps subtle but very very telling for those who actually follow this story which is that the bowl or less we're going to have to stop referring to these things as since he actually has started talking about crimes and if it is official that the vatican recognises . these things as crimes then of course they are the mandate to bring in national authorities this is the the man that the irish prime minister is making and this is by and large the man that most of the international community including the un governments and so on are making this external pressure is not only burden to solve the issue but it's also important so that i think people inside the vatican that are reformist can rely on external voices i mean not just on their own muscle power inside the walls of the vatican well martin as we've been talking about also this is been going on for years if not decades within the church. what can be done to ensure that now finally the church leaders are actually prepared to allow
7:06 pm
authorities to get involved to submit all of these documents and all of the evidence what will push them to do this there is very little that can be done i mean in the sense this is really the purview of the pope i mean you have zero lows and very vicious prosecutors around the world i mean she lived and now there is a prosecutor that has been demanding the vatican turn in turn in the arguments but ultimately that authority remains with the pope so it is really in the pope's hands to in some sense change the politics and really produce it berta call and produce a ball you see i mean burn mine that in six years with all the goodwill and all the talk there is very little to show for i mean no policy is in place that actually can help either a sewage solve the crimes or actually redress them. religious affairs correspondent many thanks indeed my dear friends. well turning now to venezuela where an
