It has been confirmed that the Pope will visit Knock on his visit here this summer.
Pope Francis will travel from Dublin to the Marian shrine on Sunday, August 26 - he will say the Rosary, before heading back for Mass in the Phoenix Park in the capital.
Marie Collins is a clerical abuse survivor.
She resigned from a senior church advisory group on child protection after feeling her advice was being ignored.
But she would still meet the Pope if he wanted to.
She said: "This man seems to be a good man with the right attitudes but the time for words and apologies are long gone, we now need real action and that is not what we are seeing."
