Church 'learnt much about abuse'

BBC News

The Catholic Church has learnt a great deal about the measures needed to respond effectively to sexual abuse, Ireland's bishops have said.

It was important for that knowledge to be shared and "the cry for healing needs to be heard from all victims of child sexual abuse", they said.

The bishops launched details of their Lenten pastoral reflection on Tuesday.

Catholic Primate of All-Ireland Dr Sean Brady said Wednesday was Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.
