(CNN) — The head of the Irish Catholic Church, Cardinal Sean Brady, admitted Wednesday that the church’s response to abuse had been “hopelessly inadequate.”

“The church must continue to deal with the enormity of the hurt caused by abuse of children by some clergy … and the hopelessly inadequate response to that abuse in the past,” Brady said Wednesday.

Church leaders must “own up to and take responsibility for any mismanagement or cover-up of child abuse,” he said.

The cardinal also apologized for his role in the church’s investigation into an abusive priest in 1975.

“I want to say to anyone who has been hurt by any failure on my part that I apologize to you with all my heart,” he said at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Armagh, Ireland.

“I also apologize to all those who feel I have let them down. Looking back I am ashamed that I have not always upheld the values that I profess and believe in,” Brady said, according to a copy of the remarks released by Ireland’s Catholic Communications Office.
