Last week was the biggest event for Christians as we celebrated the Easter, the risen of Christ. However, everybody waited the Urbi and Orbi Message of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI as it was expected to have some comments of His Holiness about the multiple abuse cases related in the last few months with the implication of the clergy. Unfortunately, there was nothing related to this topic. Quite interesting! They act as nothing would have happened? Is it this normal? Of course, it is Easter and we should celebrate and rejoice but we can not erase something which happened. And there is a huge problem in the Catholic church. Either they accept it or not, all those child abuses are not just just pure fiction but cruel reality.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams commented those abuses committed in Ireland as "an institution [...] loosing all credibility". This is true. There is a huge pressure on the Church and unfortunately they do not want to solve this problem but rather hide it. How to believe those priests anymore? I do not speak about faith. If somebody has this gift, to believe in God, it is the richest person in the world.

Instantly, the Archbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin condemned the comments saying "Those working for renewal in the Catholic church in Ireland did not need this comment on this Easter weekend and do not deserve it". Probably he was right [partially]. Not everybody is involved in these sex scandals but why nobody is talking about those who are? Why the Church wants to hide so much the reality?
