Manila Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle apologized for what he called the sins of the Catholic Church against non-Catholics and the poor.

“We want to say how sorry we are for the sins, the hurts, that we have inflicted on non-Catholics and non-Christians,” Tagle said as he addressed about 5,000 representatives of different religions from across Asia.

“We want to say, we want to ask forgiveness to the poor that have been neglected, the hungry, the thirsty, that we did not see or hear.

We want to ask forgiveness from the women who have been degraded, dehumanized.”
