Not business as usual

Cardinal Sean O'Malley of Boston washes the feet of a priestly sexual abuse survivor during the Liturgy of Lament and Repentance at Dublin's Pro-Cathedral Feb. 20.

Repenting for the crimes of priestly sexual abuse does not mean that the Irish Catholic Church can return to business as usual, Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin told abuse survivors during the prayer service.
