AS A 35-year-old, highly educated, teaching priest, the then Father Sean Brady, acting on instructions from his religious superior, imposed a vow of silence on two innocent children aged 10 and 14. Think about that.

Now visualise the scene. Two terrified children, who had been brutalised by a monster in religious garb, are solemnly instructed by -- in their eyes -- a holy priest, to keep secret what has happened to them.

This is the stuff of nightmares and yet it is a fact. It did happen -- the cardinal himself said so.
