FERMOY PRIEST EXPLAINS CONTROVERSIAL HOMILY
Fr Damien Lynch said this week that he regrets the fact that some people walked out of 12 o’clock Mass on Sunday last at St Patrick’s Church in Fermoy while he was speaking in his homily about well known Irish missionary priest, Fr Tony Flannery.
Fr Flannery said recently he’d been censored by the Vatican for airing his views on homosexuality and women priests in a monthly column in the religious publication Reality.
His column has been discontinued on orders from Rome. He has also been forbidden to minister as a priest. There’s been a groundswell of support for Fr Flannery since his difficulties with Church authorities were highlighted in the national media.
