Over the last few weeks I have been asking myself if I am really living in Ireland. The norm over the last decade was to ignore “minor indiscretions” that may have taken place. That, thankfully, seems to be changing. It seems that in the midst of an economic downturn, sins committed long ago are now coming to light on a regular basis. This applies to no other person or group more aptly than the Catholic Church.
