Fine Gael Senator for Dublin South West, Cáit Keane, has today (Wednesday) called for the postponement of the Eucharistic Congress, one of the largest liturgical events in the Catholic Church, which is due to take place in the Phoenix Park next June.Things just seem to get worse with every passing day!
Speaking in the Seanad yesterday (Tuesday), Senator Keane said: ‘In light of the findings of the Cloyne report, I support the Association of Catholic Priests in Ireland’s request to postpone this event as I believe it is not an appropriate time for an event such as the Eucharistic Congress to take place in this country.
“I believe that everyone will be better served, given the sensitivities around the findings of this report, that it be held at a later date.
“The Association has over five hundred ordinary priests as members in this country who are not afraid to speak out on the injustices and wrongdoings in the Church, and we must support their efforts to stand up and be counted.”
