"I can not help but express the pain and shame, shame that I feel over the irreparable harm caused to children by church ministers", Francis said at the La Moneda government palace in Santiago, the capital, ahead of a meeting with Chilean President Michelle Bachelet.
Peru's Interior Ministry said in a statement that the PNP has ensured Pope Francis' safety during the period of his visit in the Latin American country.
"People are leaving the church because they don't find a protective space there", Juan Carlos Claret, spokesman for a group of church members in Osorno that has opposed Barros' appointment as bishop, was quoted by The Associated Press as saying. Father Karadima was sentenced to a life of prayer and penance by the Vatican after he was found guilty of sexually abusing boys.
He was replaced in 2015 by a protégé, Juan Barros, who victims of Karadima say knew about the abuse but did nothing.
Grown-ups, the pope told the youth, tend to contemptuously say "they will grow up", but what they really mean is, "they will be corrupted".

Despite the jovial atmosphere at outside La Moneda, there were serious signs of protest in Santiago.
Early Tuesday, tens of thousands lined up in the predawn hours outside O'Higgins Park in anticipation of Francis' arrival for the open-air Mass. Vandals spray painted the words "complice" ("accomplice") and "Papa arde" ("burn, pope") on the facade of the church below a banner welcoming Pope Francis. Often pamphlets celebrating the Mapuche cause are found at the scene. "It's Chile that has to respond, especially politicians".
At that point, he told the officials: "I feel bound to express my pain and shame at the irreparable damage caused to children by some ministers of the Church".
Burke said it was significant the pope addressed the issue of clergy sex abuse during his meeting with government authorities "because normally he speaks about it when meeting with bishops or priests".

This ability young people have to overcome challenges when presented with the right incentive, the pope said, becomes visible whenever there's a natural disaster: "You have an fantastic ability to mobilize, which is a sure sign of the generosity of your hearts".
Some of them washed ashore along the river that runs through Maquehue, said Patricia Aravena, a 44-year-old secretary who said she grew up hearing stories from her parents and grandparents of the atrocities committed at the base.
