Divine Mercy

As my father used to say, "That's why it's called Low Sunday." Or a belated but heartfelt Happy Easter, Julian Calendarists. One and all, this is your weekly reminder that there has been a liberal coup in the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle. See also this, this, this, this, this, thisthisthis, this and this. At least in the public sphere, I alone have fought back. I have done so to the cusp of victory.

Yesterday, someone well-connected asked me whether any arrest had been made, and when I said no, expressed disbelief that it could have taken since before Christmas, and counting, to decide whether or not to arrest someone in relation to a single allegation, if any. Quite.

Since no charge or even arrest has followed the alleged allegation against Bishop Robert Byrne CO, then it is fair to assume that there has never been a Police investigation into His Lordship. He should now sue every media outlet that had suggested that there was one. An Oratorian does not take a vow of poverty, and the English Oratories have friends who could afford any lawyer in London. I alone have publicly defended Bishop Byrne. I have done so from the very start.


  1. Apparently the report has gone in.

    1. It is bound to annoy someone, let's hope that that is the right people.
