Praise for a wise and honest priest

WELL done to Fr Brian D'Arcy, the Passionist priest from Mount Argus, Dublin. He spoke so eloquently and wisely about the Catholic Church on 'The Late Late Show' and there was no mincing of words, just pure honesty and a breath of fresh air.

He denounced clerical sexual abuse and said he wished he had fathered a child in his lifetime. He still could; the older the fiddle the sweeter the tune and he is just 65 years old.

He showed sincerity and compassion and he does not believe in mandatory celibacy.
