The story behind the pope's meeting with sex abuse victims

John L. Allen Jr. describes in his weekly column how Pope Benedict's meeting with some sex abuse survivors came to happen.

Don't miss the section, "Opposition," because the pope decided differently from other officials int the church. In the following section ("Signifance"), Mr. Allen noted that "Benedict has set a new standard for candor." The pope squarely faced insitutional innertia--always a powerful force--and moved it despite that force.
