'Listen Carefully'

SIR' An article in a Sunday

newspaper regarding the large number of priests leaving the Church seems to have caused considerable concern among Catholics.

The letter in your paper from "Ignoramus" makes one wonder whether the lack of interest shown by those in authority is not responsible fur a lot of these defections.

This failure to "listen carefully" or, what is worse, taking the line of least resistance and acting in a high-handed manner. means that only heroes or saints can persevere if, they are to persist in their "high aims".

To the lay person who is aware of this it can be very distressing.

Layman

We should not accept Joo readily this kind of "Catholic" news in Sunday newspapers.-Eorma,
