MARK MORIARITY was ordained a deacon in Killarney catgedral on Sunday.
A number if Kerry priests were surprised by the ordination
They had been led to believe that Ray Browne had told Mark that he would not be ordained and should prepare himself to return to Civvy Street.
In fact, the priests had been told that Ray had placed Mark in an empty presbytery to complete his studies in order to get a job in the real world.
Earlier, they had been told that Ray Browne had ordered Mark to lose some weight?
A bit like Nicholls did to Fr Tom Montgomery when he was a seminarian in Rome and had a “brush” with an Aussie seminarian with pecs and self defence talents.
WHY DID RAY DO A TURN ABOUT ON MARK?
Everyone is wondering why Ray had a change of heart on Mark.
Could it be that Mark knows a lot about Mayooth abd other clergy?
Was it a matter of keeping Mark in the tent, pissing out rather than the other way around?
Apparently, Mark will minister as a Deacon in Tralee.
AND, did Mark have to sign an affidavit for Ray?
