Cardinal Sean Brady last night admitted he was wrong when he failed to tell parents that their children were being abused by Fr Brendan Smyth. The leader of the Catholic Church in Ireland also apologised to a victim of the notorious paedophile priest.Brendan Boland was among those targeted by the predatory sex attacker in 1975. Dr Brady also insisted he would not resign despite growing calls for him to do so, many from within the church.
He should show a modicum of humility and go now. The pain caused by Paedo Priests has been horrendous and whilst I fully understand and even accept that Cardinal Brady did what he thought was right AT THE TIME, surely he can see that the right thing to do at this time is to step down? In God’s name, go.
