My response to an Interview with Archbishop Nichols on WYD 2011

Too true Your Grace. Thank you. It is so good to hear you say that we should 'pay attention' and 'listen very carefully' to the Holy Father, not just youth, but all of us, bishops and laity alike. Thank you particularly for restoring Friday abstinence and for your encouragement of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. May we now look forward to some more developments in England and Wales that would also be a sign that the Pope's teaching and vision for the Church are being acted upon in full earnest?. I'm thinking particularly, though not exclusively, of seminary selection procedures and the design of the curriculum in those institutions.

Yes, and also a few more EF Sunday Masses in Westminster Diocese.

I agree Richard, but there's little likelihood of it whilst the two things I mentioned are not being adequately attended to!
