The Taoiseach has gone a long way to meeting the expectations of those who expected an apology from the State for the abuse suffered by the victims of he Magdalene Homes.
It is now only reasonable that the Pope would make an apology as most of the Institutions were run by Catholic Religious Orders.
The Pope has in the past sen fit to apologise for the sexual abuse of Children by Religious Institution members.
How long will we have to wait for an apology from the Pope?
The Pope's previous apology is a bit hollow given that the Religious Institutions have yet to pay the bulk of their compensation contribution they agreed to pay to the State which is close to €500 billion at a time the State desperately needs money.
If the Pope was really sorry he would write a cheque to settle the compensation contribution due to the State.
Talk is cheap!
Did the Vatican profit form profit made by the Magdalene Homes?

The Orders that ran the Magdalene Homes are clearly under the Pope's control!
The Pope seems to concern himself with their activities.
