About this deal

Some of those involved in his “withdrawal” have been “shown up to be a lot less white than they presented themselves, and some of them have become more oppositional, even ‘heretical’, than I or my censored colleagues in the Irish Church ever were”.

The association was established on 1 September 2010 with the objective of having "a forum, and a voice to reflect, discuss and comment on issues affecting the Irish Church and society today".the distinctions of ‘laity’ and ‘clerical’ need to be abolished and we should follow the union of ministries outlined by St. As Pope Benedict recently said of the ACP’s Austrian counterpart, they have ‘issued a summons to disobedience’ – even to the point ‘of disregarding definitive decisions of the Church’s Magisterium’ or teaching authority. Priests have accused Education Minister Ruairi Quinn of trying to run religion out of schools with his suggestion that teachers cut religion classes to give more time to maths and reading. The word Catholic means part of the whole and we believe that God is drawing us ever onward towards a broader vision of that new heaven and new earth; a vision of great wholeness. Those with strong private theories and opinions have plenty of churches to choose from and, if they find none to their liking, they can always set up another.

How sad then that it has always been a hallmark of Modernism to seek to obliterate the distinction of roles among the various members of the Body of Christ! How exactly are the merely baptised to ‘consecrate the world’ if they cannot see themselves as ‘consecrated’ to that task unless they opt for celibacy?n) A proposal has been put forward by some to convene an ecumenical Synod on common mission in the contemporary world. So, here in Edinburgh, where the modern ecumenical movement was born, there was little mention of Church Unity this week -- or, at least, I didn't hear much mention of it. It should be about “modelling the kind of church it seeks to bring about, especially in its relationship and work with laity,” the meeting in Athlone was told. Sadly, the current manifestation of our Commission doesn't seem interested in continuing the tradition that we had developed over the years and, also, very sadly, ECT remains dormant at the moment.

In so doing, they are not only dissenting from the traditions of the Church, but from their priestly vows. I was sickened to read of the meeting between the Association of Catholic Priests (ACP) and the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland (Irish Examiner, March 8). One could perhaps be forgiven for thinking that he was trying to encourage the creation of an Irish Catholic Church, as distinct from the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland. The ACP is an association for Catholic Priests who wish to have a forum, and a voice to reflect on, discuss and comment on issues affecting the Irish Church and society today. In 2009, a group of priests and seminarians from the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada gathered at Christ Church, New Haven, Connecticut, to form a North American province of the society, known as the Society of Catholic Priests in the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada (often abbreviated SCP NA).The Association of Catholic Priests (ACP) should expand its role beyond being a voice of reform and become an agent of reform in the church, a meeting of its leadership team was told.

Peter and Paul based in Kenya believe we have a contribution to make to the Church through our society.I strongly suspect from this and some similar posts that what they mean by "a theology of priesthood for the 21st century" is the view that the Mass is simply a communal celebration and the priest is simply the person chosen by "the community" to preside, with no special sacramental powers or apostolic succession.
