Cork priest asked to leave
A curate from North Cork who has made settlements of more than €600,000 with the Revenue Commissioners for tax evasion has been ordered by his Bishop to cease his involvement in commercial activity.
It has also been announced that Fr Tadhg O'Donovan, a curate at Whitechurch will leave his parish ministry for what is being described as 'a period of prayer and personal reflection'.

Fr Tadhg O'Donovan is the priest who used offensive language earlier this week to describe officials from the Revenue Commissioners, after it was revealed that he had twice been involved in serious tax evasion.

He used offensive language and got the eye on the profit machine so he gets dealt with straight away. If he was raping children he would have quietly been given a new gig somewhere else.
Human communication is a very rickety rope bridge between minds. Its too narrow to allow but a few thoughts to cross at a time. Many are lost in the chasms of noise, suspicion, misinterpretation and shooting the message through dislike of the messenger.

Thanks for that FXR.
I gather it is not actually official. but I ilke it. I notice the reference to "Da Mob", La Cosa Nostra who are the real controllers of the Holy See. I have read books about that and about the late Archbishop Marcinkus who was involved in the murder of Pope John Paul I.

Don't forget purveyor of "Holy Relics" such as the "True Cross", the Nails from the Cross, the Shroud of Turin, Locks of Jesus Hair, Blood from the Blessed Bleeding Nose of Jesus, The milk teeth of Jesus, The Holy Foreskin of Jesus, and the Bones of St. Peter - not real, of course. They might be in Jerusalem.
