He seems to have tackled the issue of child abuse in the diocese head on ... he seems more transparent and approachable. More humane in other words.
On the other hand he hasn't demanded that his predecessor be arrested for the conspiracy that enabled the cover-up! Sure he has demanded that bishops, who were found at fault in the Murphy Report, should resign - but he has no problem sitting down with Drennan - nor it appears has he any problem (publicly) with Cardinal Brady. Brady is the personification of the evil that allowed child abuse.
Nor has he made any remarks as to the governance of the Dublin Archdiocese which enabled child abusers to continue their horrendous deeds. McQuad, Ryan and McNamara are dead but that shouldn't mean that the truth of their governance be glossed over.
