|Bishop Ray "Your Umble Servant" Browne with Pope Francis|
ON TUESDAY LAST I sent the email below to the Bishop of Kerry, Raymond Browne, the parish priest of Listowel, Canon Declan O'Connor and to Deacon Sean Jones.
The email read:
1St February 2017
BISHOP RAYMOND BROWNE – RC BISHOP OF KERRY
DEACON SEAN JONES – DEACON AT LISTOWEL PARISH
CANON DECLAN O’CONNOR – PARISH PRIEST AT LISTOWEL PARISH.
Dear Raymond, Sean and Declan,
I am enclosing a photograph that is allegedly a photograph of Deacon Sean Jones.
I am sending this to ask all three of you to confirm or deny that that this photograph is indeed of Deacon Jones.
The readers of my Blog – www.wisecatholic.blog.com are also interested to know if Deacon Jones ordination for the Diocese of Kerry is going ahead as planned in June 2017.
I hereby promise you that your reply to this email will be published – UNEDITED on the Blog.
(Bishop Pat Buckley)
I have not received either an acknowledgement or reply to my email from any of the three recipients.
Apart from anything else is it not BAD MANNERS not to acknowledge an email or a letter.
I think it is.
In that email I asked two questions:
1. Is the picture in the jock strap a picture of Sean Jones?
2. Is his planned ordination going ahead in the summer.
If the picture is NOT SEAN JONES why has Sean himself or somebody in Kerry not stated publicly that it is not him?
This picture has been doing the rounds since last July - 8 months.
In the summer when I contacted the bishop's secretary in Kerry - Father Nicholas Flynn - to ask if it was Sean Jones in the picture I was not given a straight answer.
I was simply told that the picture was "VERY UNCHRISTIAN"
That is not an answer!
Is the picture of the man in the jock strap Deacon Jones or is it not!
Its a simple YES or NO answer.
If it is not Deacon Jones why has he himself - or someone else on his behalf not said so for the past 8 months?
If it is him other questions arise - questions like:
1. Where was it taken?
2. When was it taken?
3. For what purpose was it taken?
4. Where was it published?
5. For what purpose was it published?
Obviously the truthful answers to those questions will be problematic for Bishop Browne, Deacon Jones and the Diocese and People of Kerry.
The answers to those questions also pose other questions about his possible ordination this year or at any time in the future.
Other questions have arisen in connection to Deacon Jones as well in recent times:
1. Was he in the Pallotine Fathers as a trainee priest and religious?
2. Did he leave voluntarily or was he asked to leave?
3. Why did he leave.
4. Did the Pallotines communicate with the Diocese of Kerry about his leaving?
AND YESTEDAY a comment maker on this blog said:
1. That the jockstrap in the picture was bought in an upstairs premises in the village / town of Maynooth.
2. That the purchaser said he was rushing as his boyfriend was due home.
3. That he worked for Dell Computers.
The whole tale gets more curiouser and curousier ..............
THE CURIOUS TALE OF THE KERRY JOCKSTRAP
Are there any IMAGE ANALYSISTS READERS of this blog that can give us the answer Bishop Browne will not?
