LIBERA ME, Domine, Iesu Christe, ab omnibus iniquitatis meis et universis malis,
fac me tuis semper inhærere mandatis et a te numquam separari permittas. Amen.

Honestly . . !

Am I alone in wishing that Mgr Summersgill, the ‘Papal Visit Co-ordinator’, would ensure that - when he appears officially in that capacity - he does so dressed in accordance with his office ? The photo which accompanies this week’s online ‘Update’ makes him look like a would-be trendy Anglican vicar . . . grey clerical shirt, and brightly-coloured pullover.

He is officially representing the Catholic Church in England and Wales; and I for one would rather he did so properly attired in correct clerical dress.


  1. The pullover is red! Perhaps he is expecting a hat to match!

  2. ewwww!!! Count me among the "I expect a priest to look like a priest when he's on duty" crowd. I don't expect a priest to be dressed in clericals when he's out doing exercise or going to see a movie on his own, or a KFC run ... but when he's representing the church, yes, I want to know he's "one of ours."


  3. Long black flowing garments please..............
