O’Mahony, religious affairs analyst with The Irish Examiner, chronicles the difficulties which have begun to arise in the ministry of Pope Francis – not just the fact of some cardinals openly rejecting his teaching, but also what many see as his reckless defence of Bishop Barros in Chile, and the fears of Chinese Catholics concerning the Vatican’s diplomacy in the area.

David Begg, former secretary general of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions, reflects on the conscientious struggle many voters will experience in next month’s referendum, a struggle he shares.
