Apostolic Visitation Begins in Ireland

The Vatican this morning issued a press release regarding the start of the Apostolic Visitation in Ireland to examine the issue of clergy sex abuse and what the local churches there can and should do to confront the evil.

I can't recall ever before seeing a deadline in anything emanating from the Holy See, and the presence of one here suggests that the higher-ups might finally recognize the need for some urgency in addressing the clergy sex abuse crisis.
Better late than never I suppose.
