Papal 'mystery'

• Pope Benedict told the crowd at Croke Park in a message this weekend that he finds the scandal of the rape of children by clergy in his church 'a mystery'.

Did he say if he thought the scandal of the cover-up by his bishops, and the intimidation of the victims on a global scale and over many decades (if not centuries), is also a mystery? Or is there in fact no mystery to that at all?
