Child Abuse: Vatican Commission + Irish Audit.
Child abuse and its aftermath are back in the news. Last Thursday, Boston’s Cardinal Sean O’Malley communicated the Pope’s approval of a proposal submitted by the Council of 8 Cardinals to create a Commission for the protection of minors, while here in Ireland on Tuesday, The National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland (NBSCCCI), published its audit of 6 dioceses and 2 religious orders. We’re joined by survivor of clerical sex abuse and activist Marie Collins, and Fr. Tony Flannery of the Association of Catholic Priests.
