New York Times criticizes Vatican over pedophiles

The letter was signed by Archbishop Luciano Storero, Pope John Paul II's Apostolic Nuncio to Ireland


To: the Members of the Irish Episcopal Conference -their Dioceses


For these reasons and because the above-mentioned text is not an official document of the Episcopal Conference but merely a study document, I am directed to inform the individual Bishops of Ireland of the preoccupations of the Congregation in its regard, underlining that in the sad cases of accusations of sexual abuse by clerics, the procedures established by the Code of Canon Law must be meticulously followed under pain of invalidity of the acts involved if the priest so punished were to make hierarchical recourse against his Bishop.

Asking you to kindly let me know of the safe receipt of this letter and with the assurance of my cordial regard,

I am Yours sincerely in Christ

+Luciano Storero
Apostolic Nuncio
