An interesting report on the Irish College in today`s Irish Times on the Vatican visitation.. I was particularly taken with the line :
The general rule of governance is ‘Let’s keep doing what we have been for the last 35 years’,
Staff, it added, were “critical about any emphasis on Rome,
tradition, the magisterium, piety or assertive orthodoxy, while the
students are enthusiastic about these features”.
A change in the staff was recommended.
the report said: “The apostolic visitor noted, and heard from students,
an ‘anti-ecclesial bias’ in theological formation.”
This may also be true of other seminaries, even in Rome, I suspect.
The whole report is here.
