Dr. Martin and the Ordination of Married Men — and Women

It is good to see that the Archbishop of Dublin, Diarmaid Martin, has taken his lead from Pope Francis, and raised the issue of the ordination of married men. It seems to me now, presuming Francis stays alive and healthy for a few more years, that it is only a matter of time until this begins to happen. A degree of sanity has entered the debate on priesthood and making sure that local Christian communities has access to the Eucharist.

The Mob baying for Blood

“Pilate disappeared and a new feeling grew among those around us, the talking and muttering ceased and I felt something different coming in to the atmosphere as all of us stared in the direction of the balcony. I sensed a thirst for blood among the crowd. I could see it in people‚Äôs faces, how their jaws were set and their eyes bright with excitement. There was a dark vacancy in the faces of some, and they wanted that vacancy filled with cruelty, with pain and with the sound of someone crying out.
