"For the third time in two months, the Pope has given permission for a former Anglican priest to be ordained as a Catholic priest." Comment from Peter Cornwall, one of the earlier priests referred to. Comment by the author on celibacy in the priesthood.

Await the conclusions from Fr Manley's group, Bishop's engagements are known in advance. DIO's job is to pester his office for information. If people are "bitchy" about the Bishop's ecumenical involvement, he cannot do anything about it. "I almost have a papal bull" to commission this ecumenical work both nationally and internationally. "..The fact is that the Catholic community must be instructed that the Church can not be renewed without being ecumenically involved; and that is where I depend on my brethren." Recognises that he is not a good TV personality, being too tense. However, that is not likely to change. He and the ATV producer decided to do a couple of runs as they both judged the first film to be too cosy and it "required some abrasiveness and more sharp disagreement. All very difficult".
Fr Baker's ministry is harmful being direct and open disobedience of the Holy See. A review of the documents sent by Fr Baker were considered by the Synodal Examiner and the Pro-Synodal Examiner as not a sufficient answer and his ministry was harmful. Fr Baker had refused to resign and hence the Bishop is removing him from his office as Parish Priest at Downham Market. He has to hand over to Father Sketch.

The article starts: " The Bishop of East Anglia today accused Neil Kinnock of putting his political credentials at risk by abusing Catholic beliefs." The bishop wants an apology from Mr Kinnock. Fr Dowsey accused the Labour leader of blasphemy and degrading Catholic teaching.
Being discredited by the Bishop for a love of the same Mass that the Bishop professes. Repudiate charge of being disobedient as he is following his conscience. Challenges the four area covered by the Bishop's secretary (Fr Morgan). Ludicrous allegation that Fr Baker's ministry is harmful - much support, sympathy and encouragement received. Will continue to offer Mass in Downham Market.
