The aims of Pro Fide


Fr, J. Gerard Burke asks why Pro Fide should claim "any attention at all". Surely the answer should be obvious to him; precisely because, though their viewpoint may differ from his own, Pro Fide members, too, are seeking to implement the spirit of Vatican II.

Fr. Burke may "resent" our feelings, or our very existence if he likes. But our Saviour came to redeem us. too. And many of us have lived through times when it has not been so easy to live as Catholics as it is today. Donald Bell Cireenford,


I am grateful to Mr Wade (August 10) for confirming that the aims and objects of the Pro Fide Movement are identical with those expressed by the main speakers at the Westminster meeting who condemned the proposals in "A Time for Building".

I apologise to him for wrongly presuming that the meeting had been organised by Pro Fide, but as the public were invited to apply for tickets to the parish of one of these "antiT.F.B." speakers, I think it was not strange that I jumped to that conclusion.

Incidentally, my question about "the priorities of the rank kind file Catholics demonstrated in recent opinion polls" (Mrs Hall's letter of June 29) still remains unanswered. I think your readers have a right to know more about these polls which are supposed to have disapproved of the subjects proposed for the NPC. Who organised them and how were the samples taken? "By what authority?" cuts both ways. I think.

Julie M. Roberts (Mrs) New Malden, Surrey.
