The Priest

I was delighted to receive in the post yesterday a complimentary copy of `The Priest` the journal of the Australian Conference of Catholic Clergy. This issue is dedicated to the conference in Rome I attended back in January and gives the texts of all the talks. I was so glad to have this as I didn`t take notes at the time and there were some things I wished I could remember from it. I see that past issues are available on-line and so this one should be too in time.

I`ve not looked at the ACCC site recently but I see they have a good selection of photos of the liturgies which are well worth a look.

All in all the ACCC is an impressive organisation ( as I`m sure their American counterpart the CCC is too). Wouldn`t it be great if we had a similar organisation in the UK?

Dear Father, Why on earth would you be reading The Tablet?? Do you pay them??Do you buy it or subscribe to it? Can you, as a Catholic Priest, reconcile that in good conscience??

Dear Frere H, we get one copy each week with the Cathoilic papers on a sale or return basis. It very rarely sells. However I do think it is important to see what is being said there, although I normally disagree with it. However when they do something good, that is to be encouraged.
