"Pure Invention"

Before celebrating the centennial Mass for a community of Poor Clares in Dublin, Archbishop Diarmuid Martin spoke to the Irish state broadcaster RTE, rubbishing reports of his potential return to Rome and the service of the Roman Curia as "pure invention" and "upsetting and damaging."

Best part of the video clip: footage of Martin's 1999 episcopal ordination.... The ordaining prelate: John Paul II, known to many as "the Great."
