Jesuit Archbishop To Be A Part Of Irish Apostalic Visitation

THE FORMER Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor, is to take part in a special inquiry into sexual abuse in the Catholic Church in Ireland. The Vatican announced earlier this week that the Apostolic Visitation, as it is known, will be made up of five senior prelates.
They include Cardinal Murphy O’Connor, Cardinal Sean Patrick O’Malley, Boston, Archbishop Timothy Dolan, New York, Archbishop Thomas Collins, Toronto, and Archbishop Terence Prendergast SJ, Ottawa.
The clergymen, all of Irish descent, have played leading roles in investigating and responding to allegations of sexual abuse and Church mishandling of abuse in their own countries.

Shouldn't someone be investigating O'Malley?
