The Most Reverend Dr. James Moriarty, Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin, has issued a statement on the meeting of the Holy Father with the Archbishops and Bishops of Ireland. Following upon the statement he made when he offered his resignation to the Holy Father last December, he said that: " it is not a question of 'if' but 'when'. It will not happen immediately but should not go too far beyond Easter."
Let us pray for Bishop Moriarty and for our next Bishop.
