The Murphy Report on Child Sexual Abuse in Dublin


The publication of the report of the Muyphy Commission concerning Child Sexual Abuse in the Archdiocese of Dublin has been published.  Certainly we are to be grateful to those who carried out the report even though its findings are certainly very painful, sad and shameful.

 

Sometimes we might prefer to think that such things hadn't happened, but they did.

Sometimes we might prefer to think that such things have nothing to do with us, but they do.

Sometimes we might prefer to think that such things could never happen again, but they will unless we are vigilant and steadfast.

The report itself does not make pleasant reading but its findings must never be ignored.  For those who would like to read the report I am giving you here a link that you can paste into your navigation bar and access it.
