Rome's response

* Anyone who doubted the wisdom of Enda Kenny's speech has only to read the 20 pages of the Vatican's reply to see how right he was.

The framework document 'Child Sexual Abuse: Framework for a Church Response' is variously described as: not an official publication/a framework/a report/not an official document/an advisory document/not promulgated/guidelines; all in an effort to justify the letter sent by Archbishop Storero, the Apostolic Nuncio, which clearly attempted to subvert abuse investigations.

Sackcloth and ashes might have been a better response than logic-chopping sophistry.
