Bishop Geoffrey Robinson Watch

Coo-ees from the Cloister provide a great service to the universal church with their very own own "Fr. John Dear Watch".

After reading the parish bulletin from Mass last night, we here at "Sentire Cum Ecclesia" have decided to add to the "Watch List" of those who follow the motto "Sentire Anti Ecclesia" by starting a "Bishop Geoffrey Robinson Watch".

Herewith the public service "warning" in the bulletin:

These "conversations" will be held on the Thursdays, September 27, October 4 and 11, from 10am-noon; level 5, 141 Harrington Street. The cost will be $48. Bookings (02 9247 4651 or Sandra@aquinas-academy.com) are recommended.

The Catholic Religious Australia newsletter, 'Pathways' also has an article: 'Bishop's bombshell in reprint'.

A priest of the archdiocese here in Melbourne -- who belongs neither to the "right" nor the "left" and who I would have thought would have had some sympathy for Robinson's position, made the comment that most of the clergy regard Robinson's book as devoid of theological merit. It was, he thought, a cry from the heart rather than a work of scholarship. He said "Robinson always said he was working on a book and most are of the opinion that having written this book to deal with his pain, he should have thrown it away and started again from scratch on something more substantial."
