Hi there:) I don't understand this expression:confused:
The Holy See understands and shares the depth of public anger and frustration at the findings of the Cloyne Report, which found expression in the speech made by the Taoiseach, Mr Enda Kenny, in Dáil Éireann on 20 July 2011.
It's from a statement from the Vatican.
"found" is the past tense of "find", or present tense of "found"?
If it's find, why not "...anger and frustration..., which are found in expression..."
If it's found, "found" is often used in found a company, found a school, found an organization. Thanks a lot:D

    "find expression" is another way to say "be expressed." The public anger and frustration were expressed by Mr. Kenny in his speech.
