When Will The Baby-Boomers Realise It's Over??

I saw this over at Fr. Ray's excellent and informative blog. It is enough to make anyone with an ounce of common sense cry.

It is not enough to be a Roman Catholic priest in England and Wales. Catholic obviously doesn't mean universal... see what happens when you ditch Latin? Anyway, the Bishops of England and Wales see the need to run induction courses for foreign priests who wish to celebrate Mass and do other stuff like that while they're over here.

"The three week induction programme, endorsed and recommended by the bishops of England and Wales, aims to provide the priests with practical advice and information that will enable them to integrate into UK life and make effective use of their pastoral skills in an alien culture.

"Students will look at issues affecting the Church in England and Wales in the third millennium – power, authority, the role of women, lay/diaconal ministry, ecumenism and much more. This is important preparation for future pastoral work and liturgical celebrations."

Sorry, but that is just sooooooo 1960s. Like watching one's dad trying to dance and look trendy. Cringe-making!

It's so rude as well.
The MP seems to be shining a strong light on a lot of stuff doesn't it.
