US Cardinal visits abused

A senior US churchman visiting Dublin to examine how children are protected against paedophile priests told parishioners he had not come to offer a quick fix.

Cardinal Sean O'Malley, the Archbishop of Boston, called on survivors who were harmed, as well as lay people and the religious, to come forward.

"I come to listen, not to offer a quick fix," Cardinal O'Malley told Mass-goers in St Mary's Pro Cathedral in Dublin.
