Cardinal Timothy Dolan to host special radio broadcasts from Ireland’s Eucharistic Congress
Dolan is leading about one hundred New Yorkers on a ten day Archdiocesan pilgrimage to Ireland
Cardinal Timothy Dolan will host two special editions of his Sirius XM Radio show during his pilgrimage to Ireland, it has been announced.
The conversation with Cardinal Dolan will air from Ireland on Thursday, June 7 at 12:00PM ET and Wednesday, June 13 at 7:00AM ET on The Catholic Channel (Sirius Radio and XM Radio channel 129).
Dolan is leading about one hundred New Yorkers on a ten day Archdiocesan pilgrimage to Ireland from June 4 - 13, where he will participate in the opening of the International Eucharistic Congress to promote an awareness of the central place of the Eucharist in the life and mission of the Catholic Church.
Dolan's visit has been shadowed by controversy however, after a New York Times report at the weekend claimed he personally approved substantial payouts to multiple priests accused of sex abuse charges while he was archbishop of Milwaukee, an accusation he called 'groundless and scurrilous.'
According to the Times, Dolan reportedly agreed that the priests accused of sex abuse should be paid $20,000 in exchange for leaving the priesthood.
But WNYC.org reports that Dolan blasted the Times' coverage of 'this issue' after mass at Saint Patrick's Cathedral on Sunday, insisting it was neither fair nor accurate.
Dolan also took aim at the abuse victims advocate group Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests (SNAP) which recently published a document from the archdiocese's bankruptcy proceedings that made reference to a proposal to pay up to $20,000 to priests accused of sex abuse who renounce their priesthood.
'SNAP has no credibility whatsoever,' Dolan scoffed. 'To respond to charges like that that are groundless and scurrilous in my book is useless and counterproductive.'
The organization hit back saying that Dolan was covering up a major scandal.
