Irish primate raps ‘draconian’ ban on public celebration of Mass
April 19, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Eamon Martin of Armagh, the Primate of All Ireland, has protested the country’s “draconian” ban on the public celebration of Mass. The archbishop charged that the regulations were developed “in a clandestine manner,” so that the country’s hierarchy only became aware of their extent on April 16 when new rules were formally released. (The Irish Catholic reported the ban on March 28.)The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above). About CWN news coverage.
