Primate of All Ireland Cardinal Sean Brady, centre,  reads out a letter from the pope to worshippers at St Patrick's Cathedral Armagh, Northern Ireland, Saturday, March, 20, 2010. Pope Benedict XVI rebuked Irish bishops Saturday for "grave errors of judgment" in handling clerical sex abuse and ordered a Vatican investigation into the Irish church to wipe out the scourge. In a letter to the Irish faithful read across Europe amid a growing, multination abuse scandal, the pope did not mention any Vatican responsibility. And he doled out no specific punishments to bishops blamed by victims and Irish government-ordered investigations for having covered up years of abuse. (AP Photo/Peter Morrison)
