(PHILADELPHIA) —  Pope Francis met with church sex abuse Sunday, his final day in the United States, and promised to hold those responsible accountable.

Francis announced he met with a group while speaking to U.S. bishops attending the World Meeting of Families.

“Those who have survived this abuse have become true heralds of mercy,” Francis said. “Humbly, we owe each of them our gratitude for their great value as they have had to suffer this terrible abuse, sexual abuse of minors.”
