Letter sent to Archbishop Muller by lay group in the West of Ireland
June 4th 2013
Dear Monsignor Muller,
Please find attached copies of a petition recently distributed in different locations in the West of Ireland. This petition was initiated by a number of people who benefitted very much from Father Flannery’s ministry over a period of forty years.
The people who have signed this petition are people who are deeply saddened because they are no longer able to avail of Father Flannery’s wisdom and simplicity in communicating the Word of God.
We are trusting that you will listen to our voice and respond to our request, that the CDF will come to an agreed resolution immediately, so that restrictions on Father Flannery are lifted and he is allowed to say mass, continue writing and return to his position as a valued and respected priest.
With all good wishes,
