Cardinal Brady denies reports of resignation
August 30, 2010
Cardinal Seán Brady of Armagh has denied reports that he has tendered his resignation to Pope Benedict. “This is not true about my resigning,” the primate of All Ireland said on August 29. “I am not resigning.”
Cardinal Brady’s credibility has been badly damaged by the widespread discussion of an old report showing that in 1975, as a young priest, he persuaded two young men to sign an agreement promising that they would not report the misconduct of a notoriously abusive priest.
