I had one piece of very good news today. A priest whom I knew well in my last parish, Fr Paul Symonds was cleared of any wrongdoing after a claim of abuse was made against him by an individual in England. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-12065978 He is a most lovely and spiritual man of the cloth - how he must have suffered with the accusations of abuse hanging over him - it must have been a 'Garden of Gethsemane' experience. Both my wife and I are so delighted with this news today. We intend to write to him some time soon.
