Bishop Clarke to Cardinal Hume: Agenda for Hierarchy meeting

Sketching out the agenda for the Hierarchy Meeting and for the debate of the Statutes. Perhaps Cormac, Pat Kelly, Vincent and self, etc. to meet. Points to make:

  • dispensation from celibacy for married clergy judged suitable candidates for priesthood
  • Holy Father and CDF said be "generous" and "flexible" - too hasty a response will send wrong signals
  • several Bishops (Southwark, Arundel & Brighton, East Anglia) putting their men through a two year part time course at Wonersh - two years should be a minimum.
  • time prior to preparation should include that already undertake
  • ordination should not be presumed
  • finance needs spelling out

Clark, Alan Charles Rev DD (1919-2002)
