60 Minutes, archbishop, Catholic Church, Diarmuid Martin, Dublin, Ireland, Sex abuse crisis, whistleblower
Dublin Archbishop Diarmuid Martin is known for blowing the whistle on the Irish church’s handling of sex abuse by priests. Martin says he acted “according to my conscience.”
[...] In the midst of little transparency and authentic leadership on the Crisis of the Sexual Abuse of Children by Priests, the Archbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin granted an interview to CBS’s 60 minutes that offered refreshingly honest conversation. May St. Patrick intercede for the Land of Saints and Scholars and the Church throughout the world. Watch the interview with Archbishop Martin. [...]
Thank you Fr. Martin!!!
I shall be very interested if such an honest and forthright person ever gets to wear a “red hat”.
How I admire him. His humility, honesty and compassion are what makes him so Christ-like. I hope and pray that others emulate his example and have the courage to proclaim the Gospel, even when the audience are prelates of the Church.
I saw this interview on Sunday… if only more of our leaders had the heart and intellect of Dairmuid Martin. Finally, someone in the episcopacy who is acting “in persona Christi” not as a whistle blower.
