There were some doubts about whether the Pope would be able to go to the Birmingham Oratory because of controversies within the community. Two members were removed to abbeys in Leicestershire and Scotland last month while a third was sent home.
Fr Richard Duffield, the current Provost of the Birmingham Oratory, said: “It’s marvellous news. We’re utterly delighted.
Remember when this was first announced in The Tablet, they said...
A spokesman for the Oratory described the decision as an “internal domestic affair” but said that there had been disagreements in the community about how best to approach the beatification of their founder Cardinal John Henry Newman.
So there were "disagreements in the community about how best to approach the beatification" and now we hear that these "controversies within the community" lead to "doubts about whether the Pope would be able to go to the Birmingham Oratory".
These holy men were sent away for having the wrong views about the beatification of Newman. Put out of the way so that those with the 'correct' views could get on with doing things according to plan.
What is the the 'correct' view? Don't rock the boat!
