Today the UK’s daily The Telegraph published a letter to the editor signed by some 1000 priests and bishops about the Tory party’s attempts to redefine marriage.
One quarter of the priests in England.
I am proud of my brethren across the way for standing up and saying “No!”
Mr friend Fr. Finigan writes HERE.
The site of the Latin Mass Society provides a copy HERE.
I was pleased to see the names of Bishops Peter Brignall (Wrexham), Terence Drainey (Middlesbrough), Philip Egan (Portsmouth), Malcolm McMahon (Nottingham), Mgr Keith Newton (Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham) as well as Abbots from all parts of Ol’Blighty.
I’ll bet the list of the fairly recently formed Confraternity of Catholic Clergy lines up well with the subscribers. I recognize the names of many friends, including the the great Fr. Finigan, the aforementioned Fr. Blake, Frs. Marcus Holden, Ian Ker, Aidan Nichols OP, Alexander Sherbrooke, and Charles Briggs.
I hope there is a mechanism by which late-comers who were perhaps impeded from signing will be able to join their names to the others.
This is a list that you don’t want not to be on.
Perhaps the Papal Nuncio will look at that list when studying a terna.
