I watched the news and then Prime Time.
On Saturday I read Diarmaid Ferriter in 'The Irish Times' and on Monday in that same paper I read Una Mullally.
I have never understood the living relationship between a bishop and his priests and people.
There is nothing I can do about the past. But I can comment on the present and I don't like the management style of our church and I am nervous about what's going on in the Irish province of the Dominican Order: a tendency to put more emphasis on liturgy, candles and incense than on people.
And that's at the core of so much that is wrong in the church - not seeing itself as the people of God.
Priesthood does not make a man know more than his fellow sisters and brothers.
