“After hearing of the recent report by the Irish Catholicabout our “recommendation” to Rome, I can easily conclude that unsubstantiated and inaccurate reporting by the press is hardly a monopoly of the American media. Had anyone from this paper asked, I would have pointed out that our report to the Holy See is still not even complete. The sole mandate of the Apostolic Visitation is to review the seminaries to ensure they are responding properly to the present-day needs of the Church.”
This was not a good article by The Irish Catholic, this has not been good for the college as there has been major damage done to the reputation especially talk about the academia at the College since this story broke.
I believe we need to look positively at ways to improve the college, focusing on its academia which needs to improve . But there is still many good lecturers within the college, but there is a lot of talk among students that they have “watered down” the bth and bath courses this can not be good if students themselves our saying this.
Students as a whole have to stand up for what education they want in this Catholic College, and let their voices be heard, but meanwhile let us wait for this report to be published (rumored to be Holy Week) and see what changes students can ask for to bring improvements to the whole college community not just the seminary.
