Support the 500 Priests


500 Priests have signed to say that they are in full accord with Jesus Christ our High Priest, the Eternal Word and will defend His Sacred Words, which will never pass away, on marriage and wish to be faithful to Him.



In support of our priests, our families, and our Church


You may have seen the recent letter from more than 450 priests in support of the Church’s teaching on marriage.

We would like to invite you to sign the letter below, to be sent to the press in support of them, and to encourage others to sign it.

To sign, please leave your name and your diocese in the comments box below, or if you prefer email them to me or to one of the coordinators:

Mark Lambert (mark@landbtechnical.com) or Andrew Plasom-Scott (andrewplasom_scott@me.com)

The Letter:

Dear Sir,
We, the undersigned, wish to endorse and support the letter signed by over 450 priests in the recent edition of the Catholic Herald.
As laity, we all know from our own family experiences, or those of our friends and neighbours, the harrowing trauma of divorce and separation, and we sympathise with all those in such situations.
It is precisely for that reason that we believe that the Church must continue to proclaim the truth about marriage, given us by Christ in the Gospels, with clarity and charity in a world that struggles to understand it.
For the sake of those in irregular unions, for the sake of those abandoned and living in accordance with the teachings of the Church, and above all for the sake of the next generation, it is essential that the Church continues to make it quite clear that sacramental marriage is indissoluble until death.
We pray, and expect, that our hierarchy will represent us, and the Church’s unwavering teaching, at the Synod this autumn.
Yours faithfully,

S.T. Martin. In all honesty I could not pretend that the Novus Ordo bishop of the Novus Ordo diocese I reside in today is Catholic.

God bless the conversion of these men who insist and persist in the True Faith; may it result in True Altars and True Sacraments for sincere converts.

Does anyone have a count for the number of signiatures for this great letter?

I wonder why Cardinal Nichols used the Chrism Mass to pretend there is no battle at the Synod. The Chrism Mass! Really! Even Cardinal Kaspar knows there is a battle- see Fr. Bede Rowe's blog!

Thanks for posting this, and thanks to all who have signed, via the blogs or by direct email. We are hoping to have 451 signatories to match the 451 priests by the end of Easter day: and we are nearly there.

We will be sending the letter to the Herald first thing on Monday.

Please encourage anyone else you know to sign by then.

Have a blessed Easter.
