Pope Francis heads to Canada with apology on the agenda

This trip is unlike any other in papal history: Expressing remorse over the church’s role in the Indigenous residential school system is its primary purpose

TORONTO — Pope Francis on Sunday is scheduled to begin a visit to Canada, where he will come face-to-face with one of the country’s core tragedies: the often-abusive residential schools, run with the help of the Catholic Church, designed to extinguish Indigenous culture and family ties.

This long-awaited trip is unlike any other in papal history: Expressing remorse is its primary purpose.

Francis has faced calls throughout his papacy to apologize in Canada for the church’s role in the residential school system, but pressure grew in the past year as several Indigenous groups said ground-penetrating radar had uncovered evidence of hundreds of unmarked graves at or near the sites of former schools.

The findings spurred a national reckoning over Canada’s treatment of Indigenous people and diminished the church’s reputation here.

Shouldn’t Canadians be apologizing to the Pope for all the church-burnings last year during Canada’s 2021 BLM-style national nervous breakdown over supposed “mass graves” at Indian residential schools?
