FATHER MARTIN MC ALINDEN
This letter, to my mind comes from an angry cleric.
I think that the writer is on the the gay active priests who get very angry when this Blog gets near one of them or their friends.
He should have sent me his excoriating letter.
He tells me that Fr Mc Alinden was 100 times the priest I am.
Is that not for God to judge?
And he tells me I will only be a better priest if I take his advice.
He calls my £ 50 donation to the hospice “miserable”.
I’m sure the hospice would love many more £ 50 donations.
Of course this priests is above all else A COWARD.
He did not have the balls to put his mame to his letter.
He could not even come out and defend his dead friend openly.
I always put my name to EVERYTHING I write or say.
CHATHOLIC CHAPLAINCY QUEEN’S UNIVERSITY BELFAST.
Our writer is expressing how they felt when the attended the Catholic Chaplaincy at QUB.
I have never been in the building.
But in many parishes and chaplaincies the PP or the chaplain regards it as THEIR territory.
And they do not like to be questioned.
Also, many of these men surround themselves with a clique of head nodders.
It’s an oft repeated dynamic of human organisations.
Fr McGrattan was well liked in St Patrick’s Parish in Belfast when he was there.
He has since been sent for further studies.
The air in St Brigids Parish is quite “rarified” with parishioners being doctors lawyers etc.
