Dissident priest to lead Middlesbrough diocese workshop on the lapsed

Action: complaints, please, to the new bishop of Middlesbrough, Terrence Drainey, especially from residents of his diocese. When will bishops learn that dissent tunrs Catholics off the Church, and does not draw people back to it? One look at Fr Ed Hone, a notorious dissident on homosexuality well documented by Catholic Truth Scotland, and most lapsed Catholics would run a mile. For some examples of Fr Hone's views see here.

From the website of the Diocese of Middlesbrough: We are delighted that the workshops will be led by Father Ed Hone CSsR, Parish Priest in the Parish of St Patrick, Edinburgh. Father Ed is an experienced and inspirational speaker who has been involved in innovative approaches in reaching out to Catholics who no longer practise their faith, as well as in promoting an understanding of the Catholic faith to wider society.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
