Church critics want a voice in Ireland's apostolic visitation

Catholic World News - October 04, 2010

Two separate groups of Church critics—representatives of abuse victims and a dissident organization of priests—have asked for an opportunity to participate in the apostolic visitation of the Catholic Church in Ireland.

The Association of Irish Priests-- which last week criticized the hierarchy for its public opposition to a call for a boycott of Sunday Mass—addressed its plea to the apostolic nuncio, Archbishop Giuseppe Leanza. Both the priests’ group and the abuse victims want to meet with the prelates who have been named by the Vatican to conduct the visitation in Ireland’s four metropolitan archdioceses.
