Scandal and schism leave Christians praying for a ‘new Reformation’
"There was standing room only as clergy renewed their ordination vows at the Chrism Mass at St Peter's Cathedral in Belfast yesterday. But any illusion that this was just another Maundy Thursday was quickly shattered when the prelate stood up to preach, spelling out his anger at the inept management and cover-up by some bishops and his bewilderment at seemingly inadequate communications systems in the Church.
"Bishop Noël Treanor described the shame, deception, disorientation, horror and anger that so many felt in the aftermath of revelations about the abuse of children in church-run institutions.
"Bishop Treanor, who was based in Brussels and Rome from 1976 to 2008, when the Pope moved him to head the Diocese of Down and Connor, is considered untainted by the scandal that has rocked the Church in Ireland."
