Dublin's Archbishop Martin has not discussed resignations with Pope

Catholic World News - September 02, 2010

Irish analysts continue to scrutinize Pope Benedict’s decision not to accept the resignations of two Dublin auxiliary bishops. The key question being asked: whether the Pope’s choice reflects a setback for Dublin’s Archbishop Diarmuid Martin, who clearly wished for the two bishops to step down.

Last week the Irish Times reported that after “exhaustive discussions” with the Pope, Archbishop Martin had been assured of the Pontiff’s full support. Now the Irish Catholic has exploded that notion, revealing that the archbishop has not met with the Pope, nor discussed the handling of the sex-abuse scandal, since the February meeting of all the Irish bishops in Rome.
