‘In-House Criticism Major Challenge to Priests’ – Papal Nuncio at MHM Transitional Diaconate Ordination

A Catholic Priest is most likely to face more opposition, criticism and all manner of threats from his fellow members of Clergy and confreres than from anywhere else, the representative of the Holy Father in Kenya has said.

In his homily during the September 24 Diaconate Ordination at St. Joseph the Worker Cathedral of the Catholic Diocese of Ngong in Kenya, Archbishop Hubertus van Megen cautioned Priests against keeping the company of colleagues who have the habit of always criticizing others.

Archbishop van Megen told the 12 members of St. Joseph’s Missionary Society, also known as the Mill Hill Missionaries (MHM), he was about to ordain transitional Deacons that it is within the Church that a Priest faces the biggest threat, away from other challenges including culture shocks.
