Pope accepts resignation of Irish Bishop following sex abuse report

Bishop James Moriarty served as an auxiliary bishop in Dublin from 1991-2002. Moriarty says he resigned because he “should have challenged the prevailing culture.”

Moriarty was not one of church leaders who was directly criticized in the Murphy Report.

It is unknown who will replace Moriarty.
