    How refreshing to finally hear some truth coming from the two catholics Bishop & Priest. were both so right in a number of their comments, we have along long way to go in our church I hope to be around long enough to see it. Great job by everyone at the telegram, on this look at religion in this Province.

    Priest is only a profession but underneath is a human and that is how they should have been treated and encouraged the same privileges. The public are sometimes too quick to judge when things don't go as expected. This is definitely a case where the messengers got shot.

      Gord, you are WRONG. The priest is not just human. He is God's representative on earth. He is the only one on earth who has the power to change "bread and wine" into the "body and blood of Christ." Not just symbolically but an actual event. Jesus is placed right there on the alter. And, the pope is infalible and cannot do any wrong and knows all truthsand make decisions that come directly from God. These people with "special" powers are above all of us mortals. How could priests have any common human sexuality?.

    Let's stop focusing on who created the earth and worry more about who's trying to destroy it. Forget the Churches and remember to be a good person.

    Religion is nothing but trouble look around the world, who in their right mind would listen to a priest

    I just finished reading Barb Sweet's latest on religion and the church. Father Lundrigan and the Archbishop truly painted the real picture of the RC Church. Change is a necessity for God's Word to continue. From the start of Barb's series until this piece on Lundrigan and Currie, the real story of today's religion has been unveiled through honest responses from Clergy and parishioners. Good job Barb Sweet for allowing people to see what needs to occur for religion and the Church to succeed. I also liked Andrew Robinson's piece on the church and its pews. Now, hopefully the articles will inspire my RC Church to strive for a better and brighter future, one that involves the parishioners.

    To Herb.....I guess you didn't go to Mt. Cashel or be asked to stay behind after service as many alter boys did. Get your head out of the sand Herb.

    As long as there exists one individual who has faith and believes in God and in Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, the Church will survive. As long as people someone and something in which they can place both their Faith and trust, something that is not of this world. The organized Christian Church will survive. The reality that people fill the Sanctuary of the Church, where I am a member to capacity on Christmas Eve, the reality that people come in increasing numbers during Lent, and the reality that people come to the Church to be married or to have babies baptized, all of these realities attest to the fact that, despite the challenges faced by the Christian Churches of all traditions, as long as people have a need for what only God, through Christ, by the Power of the Holy Spirit can provide, the organized Christian Church will survive. Yet another reality faced by Christians is that we need to decide which is more important, our attachment to buildings and a particular form of Worship or our devotion to God and our commission, which comes from God through Christ to love and serve God through loving and serving others.
