Downham Market

With regard to the Downham Market affair. A message, please, to all anonymous letter writers and other confused persons: Burnham Market is not Downham Market.

We have no connection with the firm next door!

(Fr) Hugh Richmond, SDS St Henry Walpole.

Burnham Market, Near King's Lynn.

Norfolk.

Concerning your editorial of October 24, could you please define "Marxist agitator" and then say how Oar Lord was "the equivalent" of this?

Furthermore, would not ecumenism be best served by seeing that our children (not to mention adults) know their Faith? There is little point to an amorphous mass, neatly united, and without the faintest idea of what they believe. In my experience, the best one can hope for from Catholic schools today is a vague social gospel with an unconnected doctrine or two thrown in for good measure.

At the beginning of Vatican II, Pope John said "The greatest concern of the Ecumenical Council is this: that the sacred deposit of Christian doctrine should be guarded and taught more efficaciously."

Until the Faith is "taught more efficaciously" at all levels I fail to see what service we can render other Churches apart from normal courtesy.
