Juan Carlos Cruz, one of the abuse victims, has alleged that Barros was present when he was abused by Karadima when he was a boy.
Cruz said he told Pope Francis how Chile's bishops used his sexual orientation as a weapon to try to discredit him, and of the pain the personal attacks had caused him.
"He told me, 'Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter, '" Cruz said. The pope loves you this way, you must be happy the way you are.
"To be attracted and to be sent are two movements that our hearts, especially when we are young, feel as interior forces of love; they hold out promise for our future, and they give direction to our lives", Pope Francis said.
Catholics believe that God creates all human persons in love, but all people are also called to use their freedom responsibly, following positive inspirations and resisting attractions that are sinful.
Barros, who was appointed by Pope Francis as a bishop in 2015, was one of the church officials who signed the resignation letter on Friday, according to France 24. Most famously, when asked about the existence of a "gay lobby" within the Vatican in 2013 he said, "Who am I to judge?". God made you like that and loves you like this and I don't care. It marked the first time a reigning pope had visited the Holy Land, but at the time the Vatican did not recognize Israel as a state, and Paul did not pronounce the word "Israel".
"This is a big deal, I can not remember the pope making a comment about gay people being born that way", the Rev. James Martin, an American priest who has advocated for bridging the divide between the church and the LGBTQ community, told the Times this week. After greeting the faithful and addressing an Easter message to them, Pope Francis named countries for whom "today we implore fruits of peace".
He will be among some 120 cardinals under 80 worldwide and therefore eligible to participate in an eventual conclave to choose Francis' successor, the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Japan said.
Pope Francis to a gay man: "God made you like this". In coming forward, Cruz was depicted as a pervert by some bishops in Chile.
During that flight, he spoke about receiving Neria in the Vatican- without actually giving names, saying that "Life is life, things have to be accepted as they come".
Pope Francis didn't say anything that the Catholic Church hasn't said all along, but those who don't take the time to learn or understand the teachings tend not to report accurately on it. "I don't think he has changed church teaching but he's demonstrating an affirmation of gay Catholics, something that has been missing over the years in Rome".
