OPEN LETTER TO IRISH PAPAL NUNCIO

MAKE FATHER TIMOTHY BARTLETT A BISHOP AND GIVE BISHOP DONAL MC KEOWN HIS OWN DIOCESE
ARCHBISHOP CHARLES BROWN






BISHOPS FOR DERRY AND KILDARE

HIS EXCELLENCY CHARLES BROWN DD
PAPAL NUNCIO - IRELAND.

MY DEAR CHARLIE,

YOU RECENTLY WROTE TO ME ASKING MY ADVICE ON WHO SHOULD BE THE NEXT BISHOP OF DERRY AND THE NEXT BISHOP OF KILDARE AND LOUGHLIN. I AM QUITE HAPPY TO GIVE YOU MY OPINION ON THE QUESTIONS YOU ASKED TO PRAY ABOUT EVEN THOUGH YOU DIDN'T TAKE MY ADVICE ABOUT ARMAGH. I HAD ADVISED YOU THAT BISHOP NOEL TREANOR SHOULB BE THE NEXT PRIMATE BUT YOU SAID YOU HAD CONCERNS ABOUT HIS PUBLIC CRITICISMS OF MR IAN ELLIOTT - THE CHURCH'S NATIONAL ADVISER ON CLERICAL SEX ABUSE. BUT YOU HAVE LEFT A VERY UNHAPPY MAN ON THE ANTRIM ROAD IN BELFAST.

DERRY;

LET ME DEAL WITH DERRY FIRST. I THINK THAT THE NEXT BISHOP OF DERRY SHOULD BE THE PRESENT AUXILIARY BISHOP OF DOWN & CONNOR, DONAL MC KEOWN. WHY DO I THINK THIS?


DONAL MC KEOWN

FIRST OF ALL HE HAS BEEN LONG ENOUGH AS AN AUXILIARY BISHOP AND IF YOU DON'T GIVE HIM HIS OWN DIOCESE SOON HE MAY NEVER GET A DIOCESE AT ALL AND THIS WILL LEAVE HIM VERY DISHEARTENED. AND IF HE GETS ANY OLDER HE WILL NOT HAVE THE STRENGTH TO RUN A DIOCESE.

SECONDLY HE IS VERY HUMBLE. WHEN HE WAS THE PRESIDENT OF SAINT MALACHY'S COLLEGE IN BELFAST HE USED TO GO HOME TO THE COUNTRY EVERY SUNDAY AND DO HIS MOTHER'S GARDENING. HE WOULD COME BACK TO SAINT MALACHY'S WITH POTATO MUD UNDER HIS FINGERNAILS. TO ME THAT IS A MAN THAT DOES NOT MIND GETTING HIS HANDS DIRTY. IN FACT HE CALLED THE POTATO MUD "CLEAN DIRT"

A FORMER DOWN & CONNOR SEMINARIAN ONCE TOLD ME THAT HE WENT TO SEE DONAL IN THE PRESIDENT'S SUITE IN THE COLLEGE AND WHEN HE KNOCKED ON THE DOOR DONAL SITTING ON THE LOO AND HE WASN'T AT ALL EMBARRASSED. THIS MEANS THAT HE IS NOT AFRAID TO TAKE POSSESSION OF A THRONE AND SIT ON IT WHEN NECESSARY.

SO AS FAR AS I CAN SEE HE HAS ALL THE QUALITIES NEEDED AND AS HE IS ALREADY A BISHOP HE CANNOT BE ACCUSED OF WANTING TO BE A BISHOP - WHICH IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT POPE FRANCIS SAYS RULES A MAN OUT FOR A BISHOPPRIC.

KILDARE AND LOUGHLIN:

KILDARE HAS NOW BEING WITHOUT A BISHOP FOR A LONG TIME. SO ITS TIME YOU MOVED ON THAT ONE. 

THAT'S WHERE FATHER TIMOTHY BARTLETT COMES IN. EVEN THOUGH HE IS A PRIEST OF DOWN & CONNOR HE LIVES IN MAYNOOTH MOST OF THE WEEK AND THE RELOCATION COSTS FROM MAYNOOTH TO CARLOW WOULD BE VERY SMALL.

TIM HAS ALSO BEING THE MEDIA ADVISER TO CARDINAL BRADY AND HE DID A GREAT JOB TURNING CARDINAL BRADY INTO A VERY MEDIA FRIENDLY CARDINAL. WHEN POOR SEAN FIRST TOOK OVER IN ARMAGH HE WAS A WRECK AS SOON AS THE CAMERAS STARTED ROLLING. BUT THANKS TO FATHER BARTLETT'S EXCELLENT WORK CARDINAL BRADY NOW HAS A TREMENDOUS MEDIA PRESENCE WHICH HAS MADE HIM BELOVED OF THE IRISH PEOPLE. IF FATHER BARTLETT CAN BRING ABOUT SUCH A TRANSFORMATION IN CARDINAL BRADY JUST IMAGINE THE WONDERFUL JOB HE WOULD DO IN KILDARE AND LOUGHLIN? IN FACT AFTER TIMOTHY'S WORK WITH CARDINAL SEAN THE CITY FATHERS IN PARIS NAMED A STREET AFTER HIM.

FATHER BARTLETT IS ONE OF THE TRUSTEES OF BRADY'S PASSAGE (PIC BELOW)


BRADY'S PASSAGE, PARIS



BISHOP TIMOTHY BARTLETT

ALSO, EVEN THOUGH EVERYONE KNOWS THAT TIMMY HAS WANTED TO BE A BISHOP FOR YEARS HE IS TOTALLY OPPOSED TO ABORTION IN IRELAND AND HE CAN BE RELIED UPON TO  SAVE THE FUTURE GENERATIONS IN IRELAND - BEFORE CONCEPTION, DURING CONCEPTION, DURING IMPLANTATION, AT BIRTH AND AFTERBIRTH.

AND AS YOU CAN SEEN FROM THE ABOVE PICTURE HE IS NOT AFRAID TO PRAY EVEN WHEN THE MEDIA IS WATCHING.

SO CHARLIE, DO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE - DONAL FOR DERRY AND TIMMY FOR KILDARE.

YOUR BROTHER EPISCOPUS

+ PAT

  3. Groundswell of faithful voices - I minister to those faithful voices, if I tell them to jump they do etc!! As for the appointment of Bishops, we all know how and why they are appointed - please spare me from another ROMAN runner! Any Irish Apostles out there, please come forward!!

  5. About time that Tim Bartlett becomes a Bishop and has the opportunity to lead the Church to a position of spiritual and temporal leadership. His gifts are great; he is a leader; he is articulate, brilliant, a person who understands and can facilitate conflict resolution, remains calm in time of stress--and is a great guy! What more can Rome ask in a country ready for real leadership? Father Tim Bartlett is being called by THE highest power to this position. Please heed this, Archbishop Brown.
