Scope and content

Seamus Ahearne has said that all fie Augustinian houses and all five Bishops can accommodate the announcement on 3rd Sunday of Advent. Fr Keiran is away on business in Rome, but, the pastoral letter will be read on the 3rd or 4th Sunday of Advent. If the Bishop is going to inform the clergy before then could he place a strict embargo on the information. Not even a whiff of the new here. He has told the Provincial Superior that a new Bishop should be in place within 6 months; if he cannot make appointments then the OSA will do their best to accommodate him. Glad to see Hugh Lindsay's reply to Conor Cruise O'Brien in the Independent - my failure to reply left me uneasy.
