Nuncio recalled

The Vatican has recalled its ambassador in Dublin after severe criticism by Irish prime minister Enda Kenny and parliament of its role in the alleged cover-up of child sex abuse by Irish priests.

Vatican envoy recalled amid Irish abuse row.

The Vatican has taken the unusual step of recalling its ambassador in Dublin after severe criticism by Ireland’s prime minister of its role in the alleged cover-up of child sex abuse by Irish priests.

The Vatican said on Monday that the Pope’s envoy was recalled for consultations to prepare a response to the Irish government …

Father Ciro Benedettini, a Vatican official, said the recalling of the ambassador was a rarely used measure which reflected the “seriousness of the situation . . . as well as a certain note of surprise and regret regarding some excessive reactions”.

The Vatican was placed on the defensive after an outspoken attack in the Irish parliament last Wednesday by Enda Kenny, prime minister …

The Irish parliament passed a motion deploring the Vatican’s role in “undermining child protection frameworks” agreed by the Irish Church in 1996.

Margaret McGuckin, a representative of Survivors and Victims of Institutional Abuse, said the Vatican was “running scared”.

“I don’t believe they have learnt their lesson. It is really falling apart – I believe they realize there is no support at all for them and are aware of a campaign to expel the papal envoy.”

On Monday the Vatican said the recall was “in line with the Holy See’s desire for a serious and effective co-operation”.
