WATCH: Pope Francis Issues Letter Condemning Clergy Sex Abuse and Cover-Up

Pope Francis issued a letter to the world’s two billion Catholics Monday morning apologizing for the sex abuse by priests in the wake of that scathing grand jury report on “predator priests” in Pennsylvania. “We showed no care for the little ones. We abandoned them,” he said. NBC’s Anne Thompson reports for TODAY, discussing the possibility of a “zero tolerance” policy where a credible accusation would lead to the removal of a clergy member.
