Glasgow Priest: Open Letter Regarding State of the Church in Scotland – Souls Are Being Endangered!

Editor writes…

Glasgow priest, Father Stephen Dunn, who, in 2020, posted an Open Letter on this blog regarding the imposition of Covid restrictions on churches, (to read, click here), has honoured us by submitting a second Open Letter for publication, in response to recent, and ongoing, scandals within the Church in Scotland. Thank you, Father…


Archdiocese of Glasgow,


Friday 1st July,  2022 – Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Last day of Octave to remember St John the Baptist’s birth, he who leapt in his mother’s womb when the Lord Jesus entered the room in the womb of the Virgin Mary, he who was beheaded because he stood for the Truth and of whom Christ said of, no greater man was born of woman.

“Then he said, Son of man, remember everything I say to you, listen closely, and go to your exiled country men and talk to them.  Tell them, ‘The Lord says this whether they listen or not.’”   – Ezekiel, 2, 10-11. (Office of Readings, Monday, week 24).   –  my reason for writing this letter

Dear fellow Catholics in Scotland,

Truth: What is it?  Where should we Catholics place it in our daily lives?

For the good of our souls, and our eternal destination, we need to ask ourselves this key question in these traumatic, frightening times.

Jesus answered “It is you who say that I am a King. I was born for this, I came into the world for this, to bear witness to the truth; and all who are on the side of truth listen to my voice.”  “Truth? said Pilate. What is that?” The chief priests and the scribes hated and crucified Christ because He brought, and made known the Truth.

There have been many frightening things happening in our world which endanger the eternal future of our souls.  Hence, I feel moved to write this letter.

To outline:

  1.  I intend to address priests, myself included, to consider the meaning of Christ’s priesthood and what it should mean to us.
  2. Actions of both priests and then of Pope Francis and of bishops both in Scotland and the World which are contrary to our priesthood.
  3. I shall address events recently in Scotland and the UK, as well as the events in the world which we should fear, because they could result in my soul, your soul being lost;  Our Lady of Fatima showed the 3 children of Fatima that any one of us could end up being a soul suffering in Hell for all eternity.

Let me start by addressing one grave, grave lie told by Priests, Bishops, Cardinals . . .

“There is no Hell. That is rubbish those priests and people are frightening you with about Hell.  God loves us all; we are all going to heaven.”  Absolute rubbish! Satanic deceit!

St John Chrysostom, Bishop and one of the 36 Doctors of our Catholic Church said

“The road to Hell is paved with the bones of priests and monks, and the skulls of bishops are the lamp posts that light the path.”

St. Athanasius, another Doctor of the Church goes further than Chrysostom by saying, “The floor to hell is paved with the skulls of priests.”         

            St Teresa of Avila

St Teresa of Avila, also a Doctor of the Church warns us “Remember dear Christian, you have but one soul to save, one God to serve, one Eternity to expect, Death will come soon, Judgement will follow, and then Heaven or Hell forever”   

These are all Doctors of the Church people whose teaching and example are held in high esteem by the Church which is why they are given the title of Doctor of the Church, and there are only 36 of them, so the Church does not hand this title out willy-nilly!

Why is it that so many of we priests deceive, continually, lie to our flocks about Hell and Damnation? Christ tells us very clearly of its existence in the Gospel – “the chaff will he will burn on a fire that never goes out” Parable of rich man and Lazarus – “it is not possible for anyone to cross over”; and yet I recently heard to my amazement one such priest/bishop claim that “there is no hell; someone would have come back by now to tell us.” So was Jesus lying in that parable?

Brothers, for the good of your souls, and the souls of the sheep whom you and I will be called to give account for on the day of Judgement, should ask yourselves “Would Jesus have lied to us? He who died on the Cross for our sins and the salvation of our souls?  And forget not what the Father said at the Transfiguration, “This is my Son, the Beloved, listen to him.”

Regarding the little children: “Anyone who would do any harm to the least of these little ones, would be better cast into the sea with a great millstone round his neck.” If the actions of we priests are endangering the little ones, Christ will be there at the right hand of the Father at our Judgement to confirm these great evils committed by us. I fear the Father’s wrath.

The Queen of Heaven, Our Lady of Fatima, did not lie to the three children of Fatima when showing them the vision of souls suffering, for all eternity in Hell.  Please, accept and realise this Truth, for the good of your soul and the well being of the souls entrusted to your care.

Priesthood: As Catholic Priests what is our priesthood? What should we be seeking to do through it?

As we address this question let us remember John the Baptist’s actions, he who because of his behaviour pleased the Son of God so much to say “No greater man born of woman.” Are we similarly trying to please God in our priestly actions or is it the world we are more interested in pleasing?

Our Priesthood is that which we ask Jesus Christ to share with us on the day of our ordination, Christ’s priesthood, conferred on Christ by the Father, which we ask Jesus to share  as we go forward for priesthood. In that priesthood, which because of the Father’s wish, we re-enact the perfect sacrifice of Christ at the last supper and on Calvary for the sins of the mankind. Or do we?!  The offering made in complete obedience to, and love of the Father, and love of us, His brothers and sisters on earth, created in His image and likeness. It is that attempt to please the Father, that we as priests should be fervently trying to do, every time we celebrate the Mass.

The Mass: What is the Mass to Catholics – Especially Priests? What should it be?

The Mass is the re-enactment in full, not a symbol as some deceitfully propagate, (just like Satan deceiving Adam and Eve that they would become gods if they ate the forbidden fruit) the perfect Sacrifice of Christ where he gives us His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, in the Mass.  Christ says, “Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, you will not have life within you.” When the crowds departed when He taught them this, He turned to the apostles and said “and do you also wish to go?”  Peter answered, (as we should be answering especially in these times of grave evil) “Lord, to whom will we go. You have the message of eternal life.” And never forget it is God who substantiates this in the consecration of the bread and wine to His body and Blood. And to those who don’t have faith in Transubstantiation, who claim the consecrated species is simply a symbol, who draw their minds to “Why doesn’t it taste like a piece of meat? Why does it not taste like the blood from meat?”  Because it is God, who can do anything! God the Son has said so; He who died for our sins would not sin and lie to us!

Fr Martin von Cochem, in his excellent book The Incredible Catholic Mass: An Explanation of the Mass writes about the “exalted dignity of the Sacrifice of the Mass, which, he says, “we shall comprehend more fully when we consider who it is who offers this divine oblation” (i.e. something offered to God, presented to God):  “Who, indeed? Is it a priest, a bishop, a pope, an Angel, a Saint or perhaps the Blessed Mother of God? Not so; it is none other than the greatest of all priests and bishops, the only-begotten Son of the Eternal Father, Jesus Christ, anointed by the Father a high priest, a priest forever according to the order of Melchisedech. This is what gives to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass its immense, all-surpassing excellence and renders it in very truth a divine oblation.. [quoting St John Chrysostom]: “The priest is only a minister, for He who sanctifies and transforms the Victim is Christ Himself, who, at the Last Supper changed the bread into His flesh. That He continues to do now. Therefore, O Christian, when you see the priest at the altar, think not that it is he who offers the Sacrifice, but believe that it is the hand of Christ, invisible to mortal sight.”  (p,37-38)

The following prayer from the Traditional Latin Mass greatly helps one to be drawn to the Father and helps us to reflect on how we should have pleased the Holy Trinity.

“May the tribute of my homage be pleasing to you, most holy Trinity. Grant that the sacrifice which I, unworthy as I, am have offered in the presence of thy Majesty, may be acceptable to you.  Through your mercy, may it bring forgiveness to me and to all for whom I have offered it, through Christ our Lord. Amen.”

The above brings us to briefly focus on the grave question of corrupt sexual practices, and bishops and priests supporting it – we need to ask the question: 

Are priests and those studying for the priesthood who practice and support such sexual deviancies worthy of sharing Christ’s priesthood?  Are they fit to celebrate Christ’s Mass?

Bishops of the world, chief shepherds your duty is to serve Christ’s Church in Truth, nothing less.  

Pope Francis, Bishop of Rome, you have sold the Catholic Church in China for a yearly payment made to Vatican Bank, to the Chinese Communist party to appoint its bishops, (a deal you did through Cardinal McCarrick who advocated and freely practiced sodomy and such devious sexual practices) just like Judas Iscariot sold Christ to the chief priests.

Francis, you favourably meet with Nancy Pelosi and Joe Bidden who advocate abortion up to 9 months, who I state without doubt, whilst they continue to advocate this grave evil, are false Catholics, Judas Iscariots. Francis, you say that it they should freely and without any fear receive the most Holy Eucharist, whilst they support and stand for such abortion. “For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh his own damnation, because he discerneth not the Lord’s body.” You, Francis say they should do it when the Lord’s chosen apostle to the gentiles, St Paul, says to the contrary.  Francis you have no authority, I repeat, no authority, Pope or not, to contradict what God has given to His flock through the Sacred Scriptures of St Paul.  You are advocating the will of Satan and the world, which continuously fights against the will of God.

You have met with those who advocate, sodomy, one of the sins crying to heaven for vengeance, those who are for transgenderism, something that accuses God of mis-creating us. You say that the Church has to change, and accept people who openly advocate and practise similar grave sexual practices, evils of Satan.  Absolutely not!  The Church, is the Church of Jesus Christ, God the Son, founded as he told us on St Peter profession of faith of who Jesus is, something the Church celebrated a couple of days ago, 29 June. You are advocating evil solutions to the Lord’s flock, and thus I seriously fear for your soul.

You have nominated a priest, Arthur Roche to lead the Congregation for the Faith, and suppress and eliminate the celebration of the Traditional Mass which many of the great saints, doctors, martyrs celebrated. Francis, I say directly to you, this is not action of God, but is of Satan, who is trying to suppress the true celebration of the Most Holy Mass.

You are suggesting that God, though the Second Vatican Council wished to suppress and eliminate the Traditional Latin Mass and this is nothing less than deceit, just like Satan deceived Adam and Eve.  Please Francis, turn from this evil, from the deceits of Satan, return to the True Church, that of Jesus Christ, and as Christ says, “There will be more rejoicing in Heaven over the repentant sinner than ninety-nine good men.”

Bishops carrying out actions clearly not of God.

Bishop Joseph Toal: by ordaining Christopher Morris whilst he allegedly continues to engage in the gay lifestyle, something made very clear to you by numerous priests in the Diocese of Motherwell, you betrayed Christ’s priesthood. You cast the great pearl (priesthood) of the Church before swine to be trodden. Wicked!

Bishop Joseph Toal: I say to your face, re–instate Fr Mathew Despard now to his full duties as a priest for the people of Motherwell diocese.  You had no right to remove him and suspend him for showing the priesthood in crisis in Motherwell, information since shown to be true. By suppressing such Truth you were doing the work of Satan, and by continuing to fail to re-instate Fr Despard, Bishop Toal, you suppress the Truth – you are thus doing the work of Satan.

Archbishop William Nolan: by your actions in stopping the people of Fr Despard’s parish praying for him in the church (when you were an assistant priest there), telling them to get out of Christ’s Church, you deprived the sheep of acting in a humble, reverent and loving way on behalf of their much-loved shepherd, Fr Despard. Your action was that of a ravenous wolf disguised as a shepherd.  I would urge you to apologise now in full to Fr Despard, asking him to forgive you for such grave injustice.
Editor: to read about this incident see June, 2022 newsletter, P16

Bishop John Keenan: you have a duty, not a choice, to cleanse the Lord’s threshing floor of the evil that has entered your diocese – for example, those advocating grave sexual misconduct and showing it on public websites!  Click here to read about the seminarian, Paul Laverty. By failing to remove this person from seminary, you are betraying Christ and endangering souls. Thus, Bishop, you will be judged most harshly.

To bishops who support and are obedient to Francis, who clearly is serving the world, not Christ – the same harsh judgment awaits each of you.

This letter has been written with good intentions, and I trust that it is read by all concerned in a spirit of charity.  Please pray for me.  Thank you.

God Bless you all.         
Fr Stephen Dunn    

Not a sparrow falls to the ground but your Father in Heaven knows it… Have Faith!

    That’s a powerful letter from Father Dunn, who never fails to impress me. He is such a spiritual priest, with an obvious concern for souls. That’s always his first concern, to keep souls safe from Hell. We could use 100 like him in Glasgow.

    Well said, Father.

        God bless you Fr. Stephen for your powerful witness to the truth of Jesus🙏

        I also wrote a letter to Pope Francis which is on my You Tube channel;

        We are in a massive spiritual war and all who stand for the truth are being vilified😭

        But we thank God for the great gift of faith and pray that many will return to the truths of the faith and persevere till the end🙏

        In Ireland our shameful betrayal is almost beyond belief😭

        Our forefathers endured 100’s of years of oppression, land stolen, genocide, but these awesome people stayed loyal. They passed us on this powerful gift and we have squandered it😭

    What can I say other than that we must thank God for such faithful priests as Fr. Stephen Dunn. Tragically, there are far too few such ordained in the Church, the majority being self servers or slaves ot false obedience. Show me the priest who exhausts himself in the work of saving souls and who is not afraid to stand up to abusive authority and I will show you a true priest of Our Lord. If only there were more like Fr. Dunn. Of course we can now expect him to receive the wrath of those in high office he has called out for their failings and/or wickedness.

    WOW! I hope every one of those bishops gets to read that letter which is damning of their misuse of their God-given authority. As Fr Dunn says, they are “carrying out actions clearly not of God” and I’m so glad he highlights the scandalous ordination of the gay Chris Morris comparing it to the shocking suspension of Fr Matthew Despard for doing his duty by exposing the scandal of homosexuals in the Motherwell priesthood. He wrote a book to expose these scandals and gets suspended, Morris enjoys the gay scene and gets ordained.

    Other priests keep schtum with one eye on their career prospects. There’s no trust in Divine Providence with them, it’s so dispiriting. Thank God for Father Dunn.

    Dear friends

    May God bless you Fr Dunn you are a true Catholic priest and a blessing to the Church and the Faith.

    I wish others at all levels of the clergy in this country had the strength of faith and courage to speak out regarding the doctrinal and moral errors, and filth being promulgated and tolerated at all levels of the Church nationally and even globally by errant Bishops including the Vatican.

    I know the wolves will already be circling around this courageous priest and l have no doubts whatsoever of the Evil One shall use his earthly minions to attack and discredit him, but my prayers are with him.

    I ask Our Blessed Mother to keep him within her protective mantle and loving care.

    Ave Maria!

    Every blessing

      We share the same saint and the same opinion about Fr Dunn! He is, very definitely, a true priest and a blessing to the Church and the Faith, as you say.

      I hope and pray that many people, especially priests and bishops, will read his first class letter and reflect on it. Any one of us could die at any moment and have to answer to God for the way we’ve lived our lives. Priests living immoral lives and bishops who cover up for them will have to explain why they did that at their judgment. Fr Dunn is called after the first martyr, St Stephen, and who knows, he may be called to suffer martyrdom himself, albeit not the shedding of blood. There’s more than one type of martyrdom e.g. being shunned by brother priests and bishops as well as ignorant laity, is a type of martyrdom.

      It’s a great letter – thank you, Fr Dunn!

        It was when I saw Father Dunn’s mention of Our Lady of Fatima that I knew what kind of priest he is – the best! He’s doing what Our Lady did at Fatima, too, repeating Catholic dogma on Hell. A great priest.

    Well there goes another cancelled Good and Holy Priest . Also that great Letter should be read out by all good Priests and let the cards fall where they fall . We along with Father Stephen Dunn are Sick of the Homosexuality that pollutes us .Also this everyone goes to Heaven garbage and no one goes to Hell is now practically the norm at Funerals . I E He She will be looking down on us Etc . Purgatory also is now only spoken about at T.L.M Masses as Priests shouldnt scare the N.O. Crowd. Am really glad that Fr Dunn at last condemned Bergoglio and Roche a man who is well named. Also for calling out Bergoglio for his support of the Sins That Cry Out To The Heavens for Vengeance , its time it is being done by good Priests . Any of us who even try to keep the Catholic Faith know that Bergoglio is a Wolf who resides now with other Wolfs in a Wolfs lair.
    We want nothing to do with them for Bergoglio is not going to change now . In fact i believe that Hes set up for another 30 Pieces of Silver from the Chinese Communists .

    Father Dunn is one of those priests who just works away quietly to provide for souls – I can imagine that he made himself write this letter because of distress at witnessing the scandals which are happening and which the bishops of Scotland are supporting, if not causing outright. Many of us will never have met him but his reputation goes before him, as a solid priest who is the real thing. His letter is excellent and I hope it shames those named bishops. God forgive them for the scandal they are causing.

    Thank God re Fr Dunn’s letter. As an outsider looking in, it’s the first public letter sent by any priest to bishops that I have seen in Scotland but NOT Ireland, which is Fr Dunn. It’s all deathly silence coming from careerist bishops in Ireland re gay priest ordained in Armagh 2 weeks ago. Also Toal and Nolan’s shoddy, appalling treatment towards Fr Despard was downright despicable cos I have read Fr Despard book already. What I couldn’t understand for life of me why didn’t Fr Despard ask for a move or transfer out of diocese. Also why didn’t he appeal to Rome tribunal as well? There is something that Scottish bishops aren’t telling us re Despard. Also it might explain PF visit to Scotland was cancelled and replaced by a cardinal. Now I have read Frédéric Martel book as I have come to a conclusion that the Catholic Church is a ‘gay’ Church by now. Bishops don’t give a damn about us re their gay church. One thing that might change their minds is to put church building or property under lay trust cos it’s our money that went into it, not theirs. Laity should be active to ensure that their church is under auspices of laity trust cos its their money after all. At the mo, Catholic Church in Ireland are starting to sell off their properties due to low numbers attending the church.

    Re gay Church, there was a story about French ambassador to the Vatican who was openly gay. But the Vatican objected to French govt re that appointment. French govt responded by saying we know that you have gay cardinals in Rome and what are you going to do about them. They said nothing. Then they went ahead with that diplomatic appointment.

    Finally, well done to Fr Dunn as he deserved the credit.

    What an excellent letter from Fr Dunn, incisive and inspiring.

    How the Dioceses of Scotland could do with more Priests like him, instead of those who treat their role like a business manager or youth group leader.

    Father is very brave to call out bad shepherds by name, insisting they must correct their errors.

    That Jorge Bergoglio is rotten to the core is hardly a surprise as we have suffered him for some 10 years now (what a penance!).

    However, what a disappointment Joseph Toal has turned out to be in Motherwell. I remember his appointment, some seemed to think he represented a ‘new broom’ who might improve things. But he is either very sinister or wholly incompetent, while he ordains homosexual predators like Christopher Morris, while marginalising whistle-blowers like Matthew Despard.

    The most generous interpretation of the Morris affair (given Toal can hardly claim ignorance of Morris’ reputation) is that they are so desperate for priests that they would ordain anyone. However, I fear it is instead very much a case of birds of a feather flock together.

    When the – surely inevitable – scandal involving Morris breaks in future, I would say Toal has left himself open to legal action given he is essentially acting as a facilitator here.

      Gabriel Syme

      I absolutely agree with you – it is the Confirmation duty of all Catholics to call out bad shepherds, whether it be in relation to moral scandals or theological deviancy and whether they be Modernists or so-called Traditionalists. As regards the latter, there are far fewer bad shepherds, though there are some. Wearing a cassock and celebrating Mass in Latin doesn’t get them a get out of jail free card. In fact, they’re more dangerous in that they present themselves as closer to Our Lord. We do live in troubled times and our vigilance must therefore extend even to those we would least expect to abuse their sacred office.

      I’m sure Fr. Dunn will be well rewarded by Our Lord for his courage and fidelity, God bless him.

    I, too, am shocked that any bishop would knowingly ordain someone who was flung out of one seminary for his gay lifestyle and then known to have continued it yet still accepted in another seminary. Several priests expressed grave misgivings about this ordination yet it went ahead. I fear Gabriel Syme is right about the “surely inevitable” scandal ahead.

    Father Dunn is to be commended for his bravery in speaking out. Without him, the prophetic voice would be non-existent in Scotland.

    This seems the most fitting thread on which to post this news about the appointment of a new rector at the Scots College in Rome…

    Vatican appoints Dunkeld Priest as new Rector of Scots College
    7 July 2022

    The Vatican’s Dicastery for the Clergy has appointed Fr Mark Cassidy as the next Rector of the Pontifical Scots College in Rome in succession to Fr Dan Fitzpatrick. The appointment was made, following the recommendation of the Bishops Conference of Scotland.

    Fr Cassidy will take up his new post on 1st August 2022.
    Fr Cassidy studied at the Scots College Rome and was Spiritual Director of the college from 2011 to 2018.

    Reacting to his appointment Fr Cassidy said:
    “I am aware of the trust that the bishops have expressed in nominating me as the next Rector of the College in Rome. I am aware of the vital importance of the seminary in the life of the Scottish Church and look forward to being involved once more in the formation of a new generation of priests for service in Scotland. Fr Dan and his predecessor Mgr John Hughes brought their own gifts and talents to the role of Rector, and I intend to do all I can to build on the good work that they did.”

    “I have been blessed over the past four years by the generous and unstinting support of the parishioners of St. Mary’s Lochee, St Columba’s and St Leonard & St Fergus (all Dundee) and of my two fellow priests Fr Alex Obiorah and Fr Jean Gove. They have formed me anew in my priesthood and it is with a heavy heart that I leave this pastoral role.”

    Bishop Hugh Gilbert, President of the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland, reacted to the appointment by saying:
    “On behalf of all the bishops of Scotland, I wish Fr Mark every blessing in his new role, while extending our gratitude to the Diocese of Dunkeld for allowing him to serve the church nationally in such a crucial position. I wish him every success in his new and important responsibilities.”

    Did I not read somewhere that Scots College in Rome was earmarked by Francis for closure? Surely if it’s a seminary for Scots then it can’t have more than about 3 seminarians in it! And to think that Scotland once had 5 seminaries of its own, all packed to the rafters as recently as the 1950s. Is their closure condemnatory of the Vatican II revolution, or what?

      Not closure – the bishops were reportedly looking for a smaller building. I sent them a photo of an old phone box I saw advertised online, but got no reply 😀 Kidding! Except the bit about them looking for a smaller building – that’s true.

        Well, in a sense I suppose that a smaller building will result in fewer badly formed Modernist clergy. If it were a ssimple as that then I would definitely send the bishops pictures of old phone boxes.

    That’s a brilliant letter from an obviously brilliant priest. I am so reassured by that letter. You get to the point where you just feel tempted to write off priests in general, so that letter has restored my confidence a little. As others have said, we need more priests like Fr Dunn, God bless him, and keep him safe.

    BTW all, when the supposedly Catholic Bishop Toal ordained Christopher Morris Mr Morris was lauded on Facebook as if He is the Man to shake up The Motherwell Diocese . Christopher Morris has now been installed as assistant Priest in a Parish just 2 Miles to the East of Me al let you all guess where it is, IF of course you dont know already . Anyhow on all of the Facebook comments all positive, to the Man, to the point of him being the best thing since sliced bread . I myself put a comment on FB but it was only 5 Question marks and nothing else. It seems though that Christopher Morris is a Brilliant Singer according to some Facebook comments. And one person actually messaged Me on the same Facebook Post to see if that was what my Question Mark comment was . I said nothing ,to tell you the Truth like all on here am Sick of the lot of it .
    For from Bergoglio right down through some of those so called Catholic Cardinals created through some really BAD Bishops, through to Jimmy Martin and Miss Grammicks New Ways Ministry . Really How Bad is it going to get. Or is the game already over in Human Terms ?

    I might be sick of it but I wouldn’t pass up a golden opportunity like that to expose something of the rot – why not go back in and post this link, saying THAT will explain your question mark… Worth a try. You might copy and paste this…

    My question mark comment is explained by the information you will find about Chris Morris at the following link. People need to be made aware of the reality of what is going on in seminaries and that the Church prohibits the ordination of anyone living the gay lifestyle. You will find the Church’s teaching on this at this link…

Also the person who actually said that Christopher Morris was a Brilliant singer, knew Him personally . Now am not saying that the Guy who knew Him Personally ,knew Him Personally . Am sure both You and I and all on here know what i mean . Anyhow the comment back to me from Mr Morris friend was obviously Sarcasm and was treated as such by me, as He knew exactly what i meant as the Question Marks were about His ordination . Also and i have to say this . As Christopher Morris is employed just 2 Miles from Me and am probably known as one of only 2 Traditional Catholics in the Town
      [ The other being my Brother ] it certainly wouldnt be long before the LGBTQ Doxing Mob would be parked outside my door. They have already tried to get my Address when i Tweeted something one of them took offence to . BTW I mean this . Less than 30 Minutes later She had 5000 of Her followers on Twitter knocking at my door on the Internet . To have that Rabid Mob really knowing where i stay sorry, but no thanks . I know that it comes across cowardly but we as you know also need to have common sense. Anyhow i have no doubt that the Parish Priest knows Christopher Morris History . If we know then He obviously knows also ,and surely many ,very many Parishioners must know also .

    The perfidy of the princes and their spite decorates your holy priesthood Fr Dunn. They have no authentic authority. Jesus walks with you.

    ED just as a P.S Anyone who wishes can Google so called Catholic Priest Christopher Morris and they’ll find out much more, Much Much more than your Link. It certainly tells lots more of Mr Morris and Bishop Toal than I actually knew. Even for yourself it’s worth a look.
    God Help Us from these Perverted Men .

    I’ve read Father Dunn’s letter a few times now and it just gets better and better. Thank God for him. He’s just called out enough to encourage the faithful to know there is a priest who sees the scandals, and enough to let the bishops know that he’s no “yes man”.

    Fantastic stuff, Father, keep it up!

    Has Father Dunn been put in the stocks yet? I just popped in to make sure he’s still with us, LOL!

    That there is one priest in Glasgow with such a pastoral spirit that he would write such a strong letter of admonition, even naming bishops and calling out the scandals for which they are going to be held accountable, is enough to give me a great deal of comfort. There’s so much bad news all the time so thanks to Catholic Truth for publishing this fantastic open letter. Loads of thanks to Father Dunn for his courage.

    Thank you for your courage Fr in standing up for truth and our precious Catholic faith. It gives such encouragement to the laity, especially when our Bishops remain silent. You previous letter on Covid was excellent too. I have just read the scandalous Diocese of Paisley Draft Synod Response this weekend. It just seems to go on and on. Let us all pray for Shepherds worthy of the name. And let us all make greater efforts to follow Christ in absolute obedience. God bless you Fr 🙏

    I have a renewed respect of Fr Dunn especially as he calls out Bsp Keenan
    I’ve thought for a long time he’s a great pretender
    You are not fooling anyone Bsp John
    You are always hailing Bergoglio despite his Pachamama idol
    So let me ask you the question

    Do you Bsp John Keenan support this error of the 1 st commandment ?
    Why don’t you come out in the open and say to the faithful that Bergoglios right in this ?
    Expose yourself

    We the faithful want to know your position ?

    Why Bsp Keenan ?

    Are you honestly taken in with is …
    If so
    You are NOT fit to lead the faithful
    You are NOT the teacher as your title suggests
    You be are leading souls and many of them to HELL …
    Please make a u turn

    Quickly to save your own soul

    I at one time thought you had the makings of a representative of our Divine Lord

    You’ve not delivered

    Fr Dunn’s letter came to my mind when I read this report because those Scottish bishops who are following Francis are really actively supporting the enforcing of the new world order on us.

    It is really shocking that a pope should be implicated in an article like this but to informed Catholics, it’s no surprise.

    Nicky, this is what I find so disturbing, when the scandemic was in it’s first weeks and our bishops went along with the politicians and their puppet masters in the work of the devil, I wrote to my bishop in Edinburgh asking if they would then arrange Mass at Murrayfield ( as an example).
    I sent the same Archbishop the scientific papers from Stamford, Harvard and Cambridge Universities exposing this political shinaniginns and was met with silence.
    This one was put in his place by Francis, I had real hopes these are now not hopes at all. I pray for these men willfully playing the Nuremberg defence “I was only doing as I was told ” – we live in very dark times. Not another penny to my archbishop.

      graeme taylor,

      Your archbishop was appointed right after the scandal of Archbishop O’Brien and yet when he was asked about his plans to deal with the crisis in the archdiocese, he denied there was any crisis! So, it’s not surprising that he was just another puppet for the government to play when they decided to close the churches. It took Protestant ministers to get the churches re-opened. This is shameful.

    Josephine, indeed.
    The fact it took protestant ministers ( with two Glasgow Priests as exceptions – to my current knowledge) to get the Holy Sacrifice offered again is shameful. Men in costumes and pointy hats ( and their clergy) hiding behind politicians to lock us out of Mass is the work of the devil.

      graeme taylor,

      I only know of one Glasgow priest who applied to join the Protestant Ministers lawsuit but he was too late, but have never heard of any second priest. The fact that the Catholic priests came late to the party is a big weakness IMHO,. The Catholic clergy should have led the way – starting with the bishops outright refusing to go along with the scandal, never mind beating the government to it and offering to close the churches before there was any requirement to do so. They are a total scandal, every last one of them.

    Josephine, they like most of the rest in the Western world, not fit for purpose, however they are at least now exposed for who they really are which allows the less quick, like me, to now see them for who they really are. So it is a Blessing.
