Station XV: Episode 47 — Irish eyes aren’t smiling

The 15th Station podcast

In our fourth birthday episode, we discuss the ongoing saga in Ireland as the Church there continues to battle through the sex abuse crisis and its fallout. Stinging criticism from the Irish Prime Minister and the Archbishop of Dublin’s response are on the agenda, as is the subsequent suggestion that priests should be forced to disclose confessions of those admitting to having abused children. On a happier note, we preview this week’s World Youth Day in Madrid and check out a new website causing a stir in Germany.
