Mediation between Milwaukee archdiocese, creditors ends with no resolution

 | 

The mediation between the Milwaukee archdiocese and its creditors, most of them survivors of sexual abuse, ended Tuesday without a resolution.

The bankruptcy proceedings were placed on hold pending a decision by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals related to nearly $60 million that was transferred to a trust fund shortly before the bankruptcy action was filed nearly four years ago.

Cardinal Brady, retiring from Northern Ireland, says Pope Francis 'inspires me'

The 2013 conclave that elected Pope Francis was "the highlight of my life," said Cardinal Sean Brady, the day the pope accepted his resignation as archbishop of Armagh, Northern Ireland.

Pope Francis "challenges and inspires me" with the "message of God having mercy and at the same time choosing us, despite our sinfulness," the cardinal told people gathered in St. Patrick's Cathedral in Armagh. "It reminds me that I, too, need to say sorry and to ask forgiveness. And I do so again, now."
