St. Lawrence O'Toole - Augustinian archbishop of Dublin, Ireland. He was born at Leinster, the Son of Murtagh, chief of the Murrays, in Castledermot, Kildare. Taken hostage by King Dermot McMurrogh of Leinster in a raid, Lawrence was surrendered to the bishop of Glendalough. Lawrence became a monk, and in 1161 was named archbishop of Dublin. He was involved in negotiating with the English following their invasion of Ireland, and in 1172 convened a synod at Cashel. He also attended the General Lateran Council in Rome in 1179, and was named papal legate to Ireland. While on a mission to King Henry II of England, Lawrence died at Eu, Normandy, France. He was canonized in 1225.

This weeks episode of Connecting the Dots tackles the very sensitive and controversial issue of Pedophiles in the Priesthood. It has been over two decades since the earliest reports surfaced of allegations of sexual and physical abuse involving members of the Christian Brothers at the Mount Cashel Orphanage in St. John’s Newfoundland and only 8 years since the Boston Globe covered the subject blowing the issue wide open. Even the Pope is connected and under scrutiny as to whether he participated in the years of the Church hiding priests and covering up reports.
The big story is not the fact that children were abused, but instead the constant cover-up by the church. We learn from our resident reporter Cindy Burgess that this issue does not rest in the past, but is still very much part of the present.
Tune in on Sunday June 13th at 2 pm (Pacific standard time) to hear how those who we expect to be of the highest moral fiber, can commit such immoral crimes.
