O'Malley in Dublin

Rocco Palmo has the text of Cardinal Sean O'Malley's sermon at the service of repentence held at St. Mary's pro-cathedral in Dublin this past weekend. The homily is stunning. Just as stunning is the image of Cardinal Sean and Archbishop Martin prostrate before the bare altar at the start of the service.

This is the stance the Church must adopt in the face of the on-going sex abuse scandal: Repentence, pure, simple repentence.
