The Vatican has auctioned off a custom Lamborghini Huracan that was donated by the Italian automaker, and signed and blessed by Pope Francis, for $950,000.

The pope summoned the bishops to the Vatican after saying he feels "pain and shame" for the "crucified lives" of clergy-related sex abuse victims.

Media reports in Chile initially indicated that Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz Ossa, retired archbishop of Santiago and a member of Pope Francis' global Council of Cardinals, would not attend the meeting.

Karadima was forced into retirement in 2011 after eventually being found by the Holy See to have been a serial abuser of minors during the 1980s and 1990s. The survivors also claimed the cardinal was an active participant in campaigns to cast doubts on their honesty and their motives in coming forward.

"Receiving information that sexual abuses occurred in our community left many people in shock, because it is something that is unacceptable, intolerable, unjustifiable from every point of view", Bishop Ramos said. "We have made mistakes", said Bishop Juan Ignacio Gonzalez Errazuriz of San Bernardo.

The objective of the meeting, according to the Press Office of the Vatican, is to analyze the causes and consequences of the sexual abuses, of power, and of consciousness in Chile over the past few decades, as well as the mechanisms that led, in some cases, to covering up and serious omissions of the victims.

In the same letter convoking the bishops' meeting, the pope had said he was inviting the survivors to Rome to personally apologize to them. "Benedict has opened a door", Francis told journalists.

It is not the first time Pope Francis has auctioned off an unlikely vehicle for charity.

Francis noted that Paul entrusted the elders of the Church of Ephesus to God, knowing the Lord will take care of them.

Alfredo Mantovano and Alessandro Monteduro, president and director of ACN (Italy), said in a statement: "We have thanked the Holy Father and assured him that we will use his gift well - by bringing thousands more Christians back to Nineveh".
