Becoming more British

~from Anglican Journal: Foreign priests in U.K. undergo training in ‘Britishness’

Canterbury, England
A three-week course designed to introduce foreign priests to the British way of doing things in the Roman Catholic church has opened at Ushaw College outside Durham in Northumberland, England.

The first group of seven priests is from India, Nigeria and Poland.

Some foreign priests working in Britain tend to be too dogmatic about the church’s moral rightness on just about everything,” said Rev. Terry Drainey the president of Ushaw College. “That’s not how we do things here. This course shows how we deal with a whole range of issues affecting Catholics, including the role of women, divorce, the lay ministry and homosexuality.”

Okay, this is an outrage.

Britain has turned into such a morally squalid country. I get the heebie jeebies just thinking about how unseemly the social climate there is these days. May good, faithful Catholic Britains recognize the shenanigans of the likes of Rev. Terry Drainey and may foreign priests, who are, in truth, in missionary territory once in England, never lose sight of the beauty of Truth the Church teaches in all things.
