I have had a lot of abuse from clerics overnight about my blog piece. Its water off a duck’s back.
But this morning I had a very heart rendering telephone call from a very nice lady asking me to remove my piece.
I am aquising to her request.
I wish Father McGlynn well and will pray that he will, in time, recover from his very deep and painful bereavement.
BISHOP PADDY WALSH HAS BEEN ADMITTED TO NAZARETH RETIREMENT VILLAGE IN BELFAST.
The universally disliked Bishop Paddy Walsh (89) is reported to have been admitted to the Nazareth Retirement Village in Belfast.
His health has been in decline in recent years.
Before becoming bishop of Down and Connor he was president of St Malachys College Belfast where he had a reputation for sarcasm and corporal punishment.
As bishop, 1991 – 2008 he further consolidated his reputation for unkindness.
One of his favourites among the clergy was James Donaghy who went to prison for the sexual abuse and assault of young men.
The current parish priest of Ballymurphy, Belfast, Father Paddy was one of Donaghy’s victims and blamed Walsh for a lot.
Let’s hope Paddy Walsh has made a good General Confession.
