Second cardinal withdraws from Ireland congress amid abuse scandals

Second cardinal withdraws from Ireland congress amid abuse scandalsThe meeting, a major congress held every three years, will be closed by Pope Francis during the first papal visit in almost 40 years to Ireland where a series of abuse scandals has also rocked the church’s standing in the once staunchly Catholic country.
