Pope rejects Dublin bishops' resignations

Pope Benedict XVI has not accepted the resignations of two Irish bishops who resigned at Christmas.

Eamonn Walsh and Raymond Field announced their resignations on Christmas Eve 2009.

The pair, who were both auxiliary bishops of Dublin, said they hoped their resignations would help bring peace to the victims of sexual abuse.

They were bishops during the period covered by the Murphy Commission which examined abuse in the Dublin diocese.

The Report of the Commission of Investigation into the Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin was set up in 2006 to investigate how Church and state authorities handled allegations of child abuse against 46 priests over a period from 1975 to 2004.

1. Yet again, NO accountability,
Talk means shit, Benedict. If you really want to bring "healing" to the Church and its victims, don't just reshuffle the company organizational chart.

2. The Pope, however, does not want to bring peace to the victims of sexual abuse.
