Letter on Pope Francis was most unfair

Dear Editor, Dr John Murray is being totally unfair to Pope Francis (‘Pope Francis and the common good’, IC Letters 3/10/13).

Long ago the Church in Ireland was not forthright enough in speaking of social justice and the right of men and women to a living wage.

Pope Francis does not minimise the importance of adhering to the rules on abortion, homosexuality etc., and I must register my disquiet at the tone of Dr Murray’s letter.

Yours etc.,

Elizabeth Fahy,
