Cardinal Timothy Dolan believes Pope Francis will meet with sexual abuse victims of the church.

The cardinal taped an interview for Sunday's "Meet the Press" on NBC.

He said he has personally met some of the victims, as have several bishops and pastors.

He also says he thinks the Pope will probably follow suit.

Dolan also said that he believes Vatican officials need to do more to address abuse allegations, but should not be singled out because child sexual abuse is a societal problem, not just the church's.

Recently Pope Francis has been criticized for not doing enough to address the issue.
It's been three months since he announced a Vatican commission to study the protection of minors.
