APTOPIX Peru Bishop Demetrio
A priest hears a boy's confession during the memorial service for the Bishop Emeritus of Huancavelica, William Dermott Molloy McDermott, in the main square of Huancavelica, Peru, Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2013. "Bishop Demetrio," as he was fondly called, died on Aug. 19, at the age of 83. The Irish priest arrived in Peru in 1976, embracing the Quechua culture and dominating the language. The bishop emeritus, who was recognized by the Peruvian government for his pastoral work in one of Peru's poorest areas, was laid to rest inside the town's cathedral. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
