Pope Francis has issued a letter to Catholics around the world condemning priestly sex abuse and cover up. The Vatican issued the letter today, ahead of Francis' trip this weekend to Ireland, a trip that is expected to be dominated by the abuse crisis. For some reaction, KCBS Radio news anchor Melissa Culross spoke with Brother Charles Hilken, a professor of history at Saint Mary's College of California and a specialist in the history of the papacy and the Vatican.
