United States of America
The Pope and his addressing the issue of clergy and sexual abuse by priests.
______.oooOOOOOOooo.______ - Pope Benedict will be in the week and the Vatican says he will try to heal the wounds caused by the clergy sex abuse crisis.

The Pope is scheduled to speak to American clergy at Saint Patrick's Cathedral in New York.

He will deliver what the Vatican calls a message of "trust and hope." 

The Pope says he wants all Christian denominations to  view his visit as a "fraternal gesture," and others a "sign a friendship."

U.S. dioceses have paid hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements since the crisis began to unfold six years ago in Boston.

Almost 14,000 molestation claims have been filed against Catholic clergy since 1950.
