CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin told an interviewer that the Church in Ireland is “imprisoned in its past,” living in “a culture that doesn’t respond any more to the realities.” The archbishop, who will be 75 next year, declined to speculate on whether his resignation would be accepted promptly, but noted that his predecessor, Cardinal Desmond Connell, had remained in office for three years after his 75th birthday, and “I think it wasn’t a good thing.”
