"How did it go from your photograph on every mantelpiece to scandal after scandal that just didn't seem to cease?"
Lewis Kenny, a spoken word poet, delivers his post to Pope Francis.
RTÉ News has asked a range of people to deliver a post in advance of the Irish visit by Pope Francis.
The series includes a variety of views – devout and disillusioned, committed and critical.
Contributors, drawn from across Ireland, include a survivor of clerical abuse, an 11-year-old schoolgirl and an asylum seeker.
They reflect the changed social landscape in Ireland since the last visit by a pope 1979.
