Dr. Browne a guest at secret lunch

THE FORMER Bishop of Galway, Most Rev. Michael Browne is believed to be among a small group of dignitaries who will lunch with, the Pope, during his visit to Galway, on Sunday.

The arrangements for the lunch, which is to be hosted by the Bishop of Galway, Most Rev. Eamonn Casey, have been a totally guarded secret, with Vatican Officials insisting that the Holy Father avail of the 50-minute meal, as a time of complete rest. The total number to attend the lunch which will be given at the Bishop’s residence. Mount St. Mary’s, in Taylor’s Hill, is understood to be about 12. Apart from Pope John Paul and Dr. Casey, these will also include Dr. Browne, (84); who was Bishop of Galway from 1937 until his retirement in 1976; the Papal Nuncio, Dr. Alibrandi, Cardinal 0 Fiaich. the Archbishop of Dublin. Dr. Ryan, the Archbishop of Tuam. Dr. Cunnane, the Minister for Defence, Mr. Molloy, the Mayor of Galway, Aid. Michael O hUighinn, the personal attendant to the Pope, Bishop Marcinkus, and possibly same other members of the Papal party.

A tight security net will be thrown around tile Bishop’s palace for the entire visit. The grounds are surrounded by high walls and trees providing little opportunity for the public to catch a glimpse of the Pope. The Bell Helicopter, carrying the Pope, will land at the Bishop’s House, where a special area has been cleared. He will arrive from Ballybrit shortly after 1 p.m. and is due to fly to Knock for the ceremonies there, just after 2.00 p.m. Meanwhile, a stern warning was issued yesterday, to members of the International Press to obey security instructions at the Ballybrit racecourse, where over 200,000 people are expected for the youth Mass.

The Press directive is understood to be aimed particularly at the Vatican Press Corps, who have been known to infringe instructions in an effort to get the best vantage points.

Said Chief Press Officer, Mr. Eoin Patton, "We are aware of what has happened on previous occasions during Papal visits to other countries but anybody who ignores the arrangements that have been laid down will have his accreditation immediately withdrawn, and will be ejected from, the ceremonies.

"It is essential that everybody, including the Press, will co-operate with the arrangements which have been made. If there is the slightest trouble in this regard, there will be immediate reaction, but we are hoping that there will be no problems."

Denver, Colo., Jul 12, 2018 / 03:49 pm (CNA).- On Sunday, France and Croatia will square off on the soccer pitch for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Championship. While most U.S. Catholics are only casual soccer fans, many will join more than 3 billion people around the world who are expected to watch the game.

Sometimes the grumbler is simply the kind of person who is only happy when they’re unhappy. They view the world as an imperfect place and everyone in it as imperfect people (except them of course) and you’ll never satisfy them. Maybe they’re one of those outsiders whose favorite hobby is to criticize anyone who seems to them to be the ‘establishment’.

Blessed Pope Paul VI spoke in English about the preparation of his encyclical "Humanae Vitae" during his general audience July 31, 1968.
