Papal Nuncio: Pope will respond to Murphy report

The papal nuncio to Ireland says a response on the findings of the Murphy report on clerical sex abuse can be expected from the Pope.

Archbishop Giuseppe Leanza held talks with the Minister for Foreign Affairs Michael Martin at Iveagh House in Dublin earlier today.

The Papal Nuncio says he expects the statement to be issued following a meeting between the Pope, Cardinal Sean Brady and the Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin in Rome later this week.

"I have communicated our position to the Papal Nuncio," Minister Martin said.

"He has replied saying that the matter is receiving urgent attention in Rome and that the meeting is part of that response, and that there will be a comprehensive response after that."
