Correspondence between myself and the Papal Nuncio following the Meaning of Life programme of November 20

After watching the interview of the Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Charles Brown, by Gay Byrne in the Meaning of Life programme of November 20, I wrote the following letter to the Nuncio:

Dear Archbishop,
When you appeared on the above programme you stated that I had been asked by my superiors not to celebrate Mass publicly.

Fed up of endless, pointless debates on Water Preservation

I have now got to the stage that, whenever a discussion about what to do with the water network in Ireland comes on radio or television I immediately either switch over or turn off.
Proper preservation and care for the vital resource of water is essential; with climate change accelerating, and large areas of the world turning into desert, before long water will become a matter of life or death for many millions of people.

The Papal Nuncio, and other bits.

Last Sunday evening, on the RTE programme ‘Meaning of LIfe’, Gay Byrne interviewed the Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Charles Brown. In the course of the interview, Gay asked the Nuncio about the situation regarding Brian D’Arcy and myself. Did he talk to us at any stage? Gay was clearly surprised when he said he hadn’t, and he pressed him further. The Nuncio fell back on the excuse that I have become very familiar with over the past four years.
