Who will Break the Bread?
“Who will Break the Bread for us?” is the title of Fr Brendan Hoban’s book. Spokesperson of the Association of Catholic Priests, he looks at the future of priesthood in Ireland. He says that there simply won’t be enough priest in the near future and that bringing in priests from other countries won’t necessarily be a long term solution for Ireland as those priests are needed in their own country. He also speaks quite strongly about celibacy and how teachings around that needs to change. He explains to Miriam Gormally that the Church needs to be open to change unless they want to implode.
