<<Pope Francis ends Canada trip in Nunavut amid criticism.
QUEBEC CITY ó Making his last stop on a penitential trip that has drawn
mixed reviews from the Indigenous people he came to see, Pope Francis on
Friday will visit a remote region near the Arctic Circle, where
residential schools transformed life for the majority-Inuit population.
During the most somber overseas visit of his pontificate, Francis has
offered a series of apologies this week for the cruelty of Canada's
residential school system, which aimed to forcibly assimilate Indigenous
children into Christian culture. Most of the schools were run by
Catholic entities. Many Indigenous people say they have been moved by
the pope's long-sought visit ó particularly given the 85-year-old's
frailty and immobility. They say his willingness to say <Iím sorry> on
Indigenous land is a crucial first step. But as the week has proceeded,
he has faced growing criticism from Indigenous leaders, who say they're
still waiting for him to apologize for the Church as an institution.
Pope apologizes for 'evil committed by so many Christians' in Canada's
residential schools. <[The apology] fell short,> RoseAnne Archibald, the
national chief of the Assembly of First Nations, said in a TV interview
this week. She was one of the Indigenous leaders who greeted Francis
when he arrived in the country on Sunday. Francis has apologized
personally and on behalf of <many> individual bad actors, but not for
the Church as a whole. Nor has he spoken about the aspects of the
institution that might have allowed it to further a Canadian government
policy that the country's Truth and Reconciliation Commission said
amounted to a cultural genocide.
Murray Sinclair, the lawyer who chaired the Truth and Reconciliation
Commission, said Francis's words so far had a <deep hole. It was more
than the work of a few bad actors ó this was a concerted institutional
effort to remove children from their families and cultures, all in the
name of Christian supremacy,> Sinclair said.
One of the primary Indigenous requests is for the Church to revoke papal
decrees from the 1400s that provided religious backing for the conquest
of Indigenous territory in the New World and elsewhere by Europeans.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement this week
that he had discussed with Francis the need to address the Doctrine of
Discovery, but he did not elaborate.
Several days before the trip, a Vatican spokesman said a <reflection>
within the Holy See was underway.>>
