Letter in today’s Irish Times
Bishop Pat Buckley (January 22nd) writes, “Twenty-six years ago they came for me and no one did anything. Today they have come for Fr Tony Flannery.
Tomorrow they will come for you.” I beg to disagree with the bishop.
I have been a faithful Roman Catholic all my life – a “Roman” Catholic, not an “Irish” Catholic.
I believe the Holy Father has been given to God’s people as a gift, a gift that enables us always to know the truth of a matter.
Such certitude has always given me great peace and a feeling of security.
Most of all, I have never had to have an original thought of my own. No.
They will not come for me.
