John Zmirak`s article on Vocations to the Priesthood in Inside Catholic - Just Say 'No' to Brimstone presents a rather disturbing position of what was going on in some parts of the Church in the 1980s.

Unfortunately a lot of honest and faithful people like Miss Gertrude Best, the author`s teacher were let down.

Again the Pope`s homily on 14th March 2010 on the Parable of the Prodigal Son has resonance.
