Dublin archbishop Diarmuid Martin talks to journalists during a press conference, at the Vatican, Thursday, May 10, 2012. The archbishop of Dublin, a leading voice for reform following Ireland's devastating church sex abuse scandal, says the church is trying to rebuild even as it confronts the ghosts of its past. Archbishop Diarmuid Martin told a Vatican briefing Thursday he hoped an upcoming church congress in Dublin would show the world that the Irish church is "alive and vital and anxious to set out on a path of renewal."
