CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Brendan Leahy of Limerick told a television audience that same-sex couples should be welcomed at the World Meeting of Families, which will be hosted next year by the Dublin archdiocese. “We are living in changing times and the family too is changing,” the bishop said. He said that the Church-sponsored meeting should be “the coming together of the full diversity of family.”

    Dear Bishop Brendan, Has the Gospel also changed?

    Here is another Irish bishop who preaches against Church teachings. He is complicit in the sin of same sex joining. Notice I don't call them marriages. What will it take for these bishops to speak truth? St. PATRICK must be crying over Ireland. So many of its Catholic leaders will answer to Christ for the losses in His flock. Lord help us.
