Wait! Isn't that something that is subject to ecclesiastical penalty?
Not in this instance Fr Z has started a campaign to "Pound Fr Finigan". He has given an update for Day Two. He has raised a considerable sum for which I, and many of my parishioners, will be most grateful.
Damian Thompson's appeal has also been most helpful and has reached well over £1000. The letters of support have been very moving, coming as they do from people at all levels of society - Judges, QCs, Headteachers, senior Civil Servants; as well as manual workers, students, parents, and children.
Many thanks to all of you for your support. I have received many hundreds of letters and emails and will get around to replying to all - in the meantime, please be assured that you are in my prayers and that your encouragement is greatly appreciated.
