Aboard The Papal Plane (AP) Pope Benedict XVI says he is “deeply ashamed” of the clergy sexual abuse scandal that stained the Catholic Church.

He pledges to work to make sure that such abuse won't happen again and that pedophiles don't become priests.

Benedict was answering reporters questions aboard a special Alitalia airliner as he was flying from Rome to Washington to begin his first papal pilgrimage to the United States.

He also says he will discuss immigration when he meets with President Bush.
