|Cardiff Castle, in the city centre|
Cardiff is important, obviously, but, of course we have had a Papal Nuncio who has suffered from ill health and who has now had to retire, so no action there. The Archdiocese must be languishing without a firm hand on the tiller. There is much work to be done - many convents full of nuns need admonishing and told to start wearing the habit and begin mentioning things like sin, hell, purgatory and redemption to their school classes.
Priests need to be told to get learning how to celebrate the EF Mass, Latin Classes need to be set up, the post of Choir Supremo for the Diocese is vacant and urgently needs filling with a brief to bring back the 'chant.
Joinery firms need commissioning to make new Communion rails for all the churches and stone masons are needed to re-set the altars ad orientum!
Saturday morning altar server groups need recruiting and training, open to all between the ages of 6 and 21 and male!
A network of Legion of Mary organisers to be established for young girls and women, UCM clubs to be re-vitalised and energised, plans for recruiting vocations developed, Adoption Agencies hauled back into line and told to forget about homosexuals adopting.
Confessionals and confession to be re-established along with 40 hours adoration, Benediction, Vespers, Retreats for parishes; Catholic Schools to be allowed freedom to manage their own future and the syllabus for sex education scrapped.
Whole parishes to be re-assembled in groups a la Pope Benedict's observations so that priests may operate in teams, on rotas, with a better sense of mission and purpose.
Targets need to be set, regarding conversions, Baptisms, Singalong funerals to be banned, pro life rallies planned.......heavens!
The new man, whoever he is, has a mammoth task ahead of him.
Or......he might not do any of the above........................ridiculous!
