There is a press release here.
I think it is interesting that the Pope points to a more general crisis.
...of faith affecting the Church and he linked that to the lack of respect for the human person and how the weakening of faith has been a significant contributing factor in the phenomenon of the sexual abuse of minors. He stressed the need for a deeper theological reflection on the whole issue, and called for an improved human, spiritual, academic and pastoral preparation both of candidates for the priesthood and religious life and of those already ordained and professed.
I think what is happening in Ireland is significant for the whole Church, it is not just about Ireland, it is not just about child abuse. It is the gross failure of episcopal leadership. Ireland with the sharp decline in both practice and vocations is litmus of problem's elsewhere.
One serious suggestion is that the Irish hierarchy is simply too big.
Ireland, with four million Catholics, has 26 dioceses – just one less than Germany, which has a church that is 35 million-strong. More bishops means that the average calibre of each tends to be lower, and co-ordination between them is proportionately more difficult. It has been suggested that the number of dioceses should be cut back to eight – a proposal the Irish bishops have been resisting with a unanimity that was noticeably lacking in their response to the scandal that brought them to Rome.
What goes for Ireland's 26 dioceses also goes for England's 22: we need to watch this space.
