My Reflections on the U.S. Church. (Irish Times, dec. 9th)

Marginalised Catholics ‘very hopeful’ about papacy of Francis 

They see him ‘returning to the teaching of the Second Vatican Council’

Fr Tony Flannery.  Tue, Dec 9, 2014, 00:01

I have recently returned from an 18-city speaking tour in the US, organised by the network of Church Reform movements.

From the head of FutureChurch, main organisers of my U.S. Tour

I am compiling a report on our Tony Flannery tour and thought you would be interested in reading some of the publicity Tony received here in the USA.  In short, he quickly became known as a truth-telling folk hero and wisdom figure for thousands with a delightful flare for making the knotty difficulties involved in working for reform lighter through humor.  Tony was easily loved and embraced by everyone he met.
