How the story of abuse allegations in the Irish Catholic Church emerged...

"The sexual abuse of a child is and always was a crime in civil law; it is and always was a crime [in] canon law; it is and always was grievously sinful." - Most Rev. Diarmuid Martin, Archbishop of Dublin

  1. I've been following this and it is just pathetic. Perversion of power is exactly right.
    The devil knows exactly how to twist and turn, to tempt and to deceive; the corruption of the best is the worst.
    I pray and hope this will be the opportunity for some real conversion and repentance for the whole Irish nation, as well as our own.
