Dont know if any of you was watching BBC programme on Brian Darcy last night. While i have not always been his greatest admirer this programme portrayed him in a positive light I think. He has given his life to the Catholic Church and he works hard and reaches out to a lot of people, across all classes. I think he has been treated unfairly by Rome - probably at the behest of some right wing members of the Church here. Also shown on the programme was Fr. Brian McKevitt, editor of Alive magazine which is not the most charitable paper I may add. In contrast to McKevitt, Darcy comes across as a shining light.
I think this programme shows the disfunctional nature of the Catholic Church here which Rome should be addressing, not the likes of harmless creatures like Brian Darcy and other priests like Tony Flannery.
