Note the referential nature of the description and the purpose, “They will be available for prayers and spiritual talks.” Let us assume they invited themselves but let us look at what this signifies for the unity of the Catholic Church? First we have a schismatic woman visionary who is in open rebellion against the Archbishop of Tuam being accompanied by a priest who is in good standing with the Archdiocese of Armagh. He is undermining Catholic orthodoxy by consorting, enabling and giving her movement support. Then we have a theologian from Garristown, Co. Meath from the Archdiocese of Dublin who is publically supporting Christina on the House of Prayer web site.
“Catholic writer and journalist Martina Caffrey, MA in Theology, rebuts media sensational calls for the House of Prayer in Achill and Christina Gallagher to be excommunicated…”
One must ask has Martina Caffrey sought permission from the Archbishop to spread this unsupported visionary?
Finally as noted a number of times we have people from every diocese in Ireland travelling up to Achill every week. This makes it very appropriate that the bishops are going to address this issue forthwith. Finally as this reports suggests this is not just an Irish issue but the bishops in Ireland have a duty to their Mexican and US bishops who equally do not recognise Christina to act in concert to bring this breach of Catholicity to an end.
