From Mrs Mary Bosi

SIR — We are sorry that some people are disappointed by the transfer of three Holy Days, but in our diocese we are relieved. Our (mostly elderly) priests cope with two or three churches, plus holiday visitors, and they are grossly overworked.

We are grateful to our priest, who travels 60 miles through winding roads, in all weathers, to provide Mass in three churches at weekends. On weekdays we hlave a choice of Dolgellau (25 miles away) Or Aberystwyth (also 25 miles) with an intermittent bus service. Of course, if we miss Mass no sin is committed, but that is no comfort. We have not received Holy Communion or listened to the readings for the Feast.

If Pastoi. luventus (September 8) should conie to Wales for a holiday he would meet plenty of people who are profoundly thankful that the bishops have taken this step.

Yours faithfully, MARY BOS1 Aberdyfi, Gwynedd
