A Letter to the Irish Bishops
Your Most Reverend Excellencies the Archbishops and bishops of Ireland, in this letter I desire to raise two important issues which I believe are in urgent need of your attention. Both of them are concerned with the lives and ministry of priests. Firstly, there is a growing pastoral requirement to appoint trained exorcists in each of our dioceses. Secondly there is a need to conduct the national mission for bishops, priests and religious, which was called for, in 2012, by Pope Benedict XVI in his letter to the Irish Church.
