People holding umbrellas are reflected in puddles of rain at the Vatican Radio where the head of the Irish Bishops Conference Cardinal Sean Brady is leading a news conference following a two-day meeting with Pope Benedict XVI February 16, 2010. Irish bishops have promised Pope Benedict that they are committed to cooperating with civil authorities over a vast paedophilia scandal, the Vatican said on Tuesday.
