Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor talks to Rosie Boycott
Hay Festival 2015,
At the age of 68, with the Catholic Church worldwide engulfed by the sexual abuse crisis, Murphy-O’Connor was a surprise appointment as Archbishop of Westminster. He reflects frankly on the mistakes he himself made and on how he responded to the crisis, and he speaks poignantly of how he navigated the tempestuous first decade of the twenty-first century, offering his opinion on the future of the Catholic Church with Pope Francis. His memoir is entitled An English Spring.
