What Bishop Eamon Martin said to the ACI

A delegation from the Association of Catholics in Ireland (ACI) on 26 November 2015 met with Archbishop Eamon Martin in Armagh. They asked him if he could give some support to the Irish priests who have been silenced. Archbishop Eamon Martin replied it was a matter for the Heads of the relevant Religious Orders and the Vatican CDF. The ACI delegation also asked if the bishops were meeting with the ACP and Archbishop Eamon replied that he meets with ACP members very regularly.

Link to interview on Radio; and one interesting response

This is the link to the interview my brother Frank and myself did on RTE radio on Sunday, January 10th with Miriam O’Callaghan. It was a new experience for both of us to be on a programme together. Our lives have gone in different directions, and the issues we were talking about were very different, but I think it still made a good programme.

As a follow up to the programme I got this email this morning; as you can see it is a copy of an email he has sent to the bishops, and indeed to Church authorities all over the place.

A World of Negativity

Maybe it is that I am ageing, but I find myself having less and less tolerance for all the negativity being churned out by various media outlets about life generally in Ireland, and especially about people in positions of authority.
A classic example was the much hyped Prime Time programme on corruption in politics. How many phone calls did they make to politicians, assuming false identities and trying to get people to act corruptly.
