Godless culture

•Catholic Bishop of Raphoe Dr Philip Boyce claims that the Catholic Church is being attacked by "the arrows of a secular and godless culture".

He follows this up with the view that it was also rocked from the inside by the sins and crimes of priests. He might very well include the transgressions and sins of omission by his fellow bishops.

An independent review of diocesan files relating to child abuse allegations against priests is nearing completion in the bishop's diocese.
