The prominent Italian newspaper, Corriere della Sera, published a beautiful quote of Lawrence Grech, a victim of sexual abuse, who met with Pope Benedict during his pastoral visit to Malta Saturday and Sunday and had a profound experience. Mr. Grech said that he felt liberated, that a great stone lifted after speaking with Benedict. Grech went on to say that after this encounter he was a more convinced Catholic and that this was “the greatest gift after the birth of my daughter.”

Italy’s other news agency, La Stampa, reported the story.
Will this quote show up in the American press?
