Pope Francis has admitted that 1 in 50 priests, including high ranking Vatican officials, are pedophiles who sometimes rape children.

According to the Pontiff, although acts of pedophilia should be seen as a “grave sin,” Catholics should remember that forgiving people of their sins is their duty to God.

A recent investigation by an Australian inquiry uncovered evidence that the Pope may be grossly underestimating the real number of priests who abuse children. According to the Australian commission, 1 in 14 priests are likely to be pedophiles.

The commission also discovered evidence of “witness intimidation” against alleged victims.

Daily Mail reports: While Pope Francis has carried out sweeping reforms to the Vatican, he has been accused of not doing enough to tackle the child abuse crisis.

In his interview, Francis was quoted as saying: ‘The Church is fighting for the eradication of the habit and for education that rehabilitates.

‘But this leprosy is also present in our house. Many of my colleagues who are working against it tell me that paedophilia inside the Church is at the level of 2 per cent.’
