Preposterous statement by the senior clerics in Rome to former president Mary Mc Aleese, They said, (the devil works through children). God forgive them for they do know what do or say. Amen.

Its just another way of avoiding responsability for Hiding criminals.There was no devils.There were pédophiles protected by the Church. There were religous beating and abusing children in thier care.When there were complaints the children were again beaten for complaining.  All this was known by the whole country but that turned away out of frar of offending the Church.
