WILL NULTY GET TUAM?

Nulty

Clerical circles are awash with the talk that Denis Nulty will move from Kildare and Leighlin to Tuam.

This talk comes alongside the news that the priests of Tuam have made it very clear to the nunio that they will not accept the appointment of Fintan Monahan as their archbishop.

MONAHAN

Monahan was Neary’s secretary for many years and is not liked by the priests.

He is reputed to be nasty, sneaky and have a fierce temper.

If Nulty gets the job they will have no problems as Nulty has no substance and tries to be all things to all men and women.

But before leaving Kildare he should sort out the clergy attending the Gay / Satanic meetings near Stradbally.

There are also outstanding question of a Kikdare priest with a cloud hanging over him.

THE FUNERAL OF MONICA TIGHE RIP.

Bishop Paul Tighe’s mother was cremated in Dublin yesterday.

We all expected Paul to be the celebtate the funeral Mass but instead the main celebrant was Paul’s close friend Diarmuid Martin.

Paul did not preach the homily. DM did.

Perhaps Paul was too upset to celebrate. The death of one’s mother is an awful experience.

I celebrated the funerals of both my parents – my Dad, Jim in 1985 with Cahal Daly presiding and my Mum Josephine in 2006 in the Unitarian Church in Dublin.

My mother’s funeral was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.

What’s wrong with the priests. Out here in the world of work you get your manager appointed and if you don’t like it, in the absence of provable wrongdoing, you can take a hike.
If the rumours are true it means the clergy of the diocese are a bunch of spoiled princesses.

Bishop Nulty must make a statement as to why one of his priests has been c/o Bishops House for the last 12 years in official documents ( ref : Irish Catholic directory 2009-2021 inclusive) but in reality has been in ministry abroad. The website of Kildare and Leighlin was only changed a number of weeks ago when K and L were challenged on this. Records show that at least since 2012 this priest is located in Bishops House Carlow (ref: wayback machine @ https://archive.org/web/).
There is also no photo of this priest on the diocese website where he is in ministry despite him being there for 10 years. Out of 160+ priests, all but two have no photo. What are K and L hiding?

The AVEPRO Evaluation Report on PU Maynooth said that among its weaknesses are that:
the decreasing number of students and the low academic ability of some in-coming students in recent years;
• fragmentation of courses; an excessive number of courses with small student numbers in each leading to a drain on personnel and financial resources;
• lack of incentive to engage in research and publication.

Like

11.57am. You might be surprised by what I know and who I am.
The latest internal quality review by PU Maynooth confirms what I said. It found that:
The student retention rate is also a cause of concern. This figure may be explained by the following reasons:
a. The number of students who register for first year theology had identified Arts in NUIM as their first preference on their CAO application form; theology at SPCM was their second or even third choice. Failing to gain the necessary entry points into NUIM, these students take their second preference offer of Theology at St Patrick’s College, Maynooth. If they successfully complete their first year examinations, many of these students apply to NUIM for an inter-institutional transfer. The numbers applying for this in recent years has been in the region of 10-15.
b. The relatively low CAO entry points attract a sizeable number of
academically weaker students. Consequently, a large number of the students find Theology more difficult and, in some aspects, more
confessional than they expected. This accounts for the high failure rate in the summer examinations at the end of first-year. Many students who fail the examinations drop out at this stage. The drop out rate in second and third year is very small.
After successfully raising the entry points gradually over a few years, these points may have to lowered again in order to keep student numbers stable. This has a negative impact on the student profile.

Anyone asking such a question concedes their argument is week and imagines their interlocutor(s) will be impressed by status.

Status is no longer accorded automatic respect, much less deference. Respect is earned by the truth and cogency of one’s argument. And yours is weak.

If you knew anything about CAO systems you’d realise they don’t function like IQ quotients. On the contrary they’re simply the relationship between supply and demand.

It’s interesting that the only voices that could be heard in the appointment of a new archbishop are those of the other bishops, the nuncio, and some of the clergy (although I suspect the latter will not be listened to that closely, for they are but foot soldiers). Not a single lay person will have been meaningfully engaged about who or what they want to see for the future of THEIR Church ! At least political parties and companies arrange for focus groups so that they can learn the views of their supporters / customers. No sign of that in the RCC. So, I expect that while there may be a flurry of interest and comment from the clerical apparatchiks, there will just be a big sigh of indifference from everybody else. This disengagement and disinterest (driven by centuries of a clerical dominated Church) is dangerous for the RCC and its clerics. When people have no investment or interest, they eventually disengage. When they disengage they don’t attend. When they don’t attend they don’t pay up. That’s the bottom line. The lesson for those of us who have some kind of interest in the RCC and its future is to ensure that the clergy understand our unhappiness with the status quo, and the way to do that is to simply not pay up. They will then take an interest, I assure you. Even focus groups. Even consultation. Even some level of meaningful decision making on the part of the laity. Now that would be something !

Bishop Nulty is a kind Bishop. He is liked by many in his Diocese. Whoever takes on the role of a Diocesan Bishop anywhere will face many challenges, smaller congregations, fewer and fewer priests, less finances and less people willing to participate in parish involvement. Despite all new initiatives to affirm the role of the local Christian community and lay involvement, we are not anywhere near what we envision or promise. On the ground in our parishes, we are struggling to fulfil our mission statements to embrace, include and welcome all in the name of Jesus and his gospel. We get so far but the inevitable happens – insufficient responses, simply because we mostly have an older constituency at parish masses and many have played their part before. But we must build on the goodwill we still have in our communities. How – I’m not too sure.

There is an obvious solution. REFORM and stop allowing older white men to decide everything! But the parishioners are not being listened to. The obsession with Bishops having control is insanity.

Losing a parent at any age is heart breaking and although more common for a priest to conduct the funeral of his parents I recognise that for any bummer of reasons Bishop Tighe felt he couldn’t and his bezzy did it instead.
That said – Tighe is a prima donna, wears his legal training like a badge of honour, is transparently ambitious and woefully lacking in pastoral skills (perfect combination for further promotion) and although presumably high on the IQ quotient scores less high on emotional intelligence.
I also perceived when I met him that he is less interested in the fairer sex and suspect that he has mastered the art of endearing himself to various old Queens who populate the Vatican and Irish episcopacy.
