The cardinal made the apology on the last day of the Philippine Conference on New Evangelization (PCNE), a 3-day event that aims to rekindle the Catholic faith. He followed in the footsteps of the late John Paul II, who made history by publicly apologizing for the Church's sins in 2000.

The event was the first time Pope Francis made his first public address in English.
