Letter: Priests broken at `boot camp'

Sir: The priest writing anonymously in The Independent compares Stroud to an open prison to which he was "sent" by the Catholic Church. However, he became a priest voluntarily, he drove himself to Stroud voluntarily and as, anyone can at any time leave a Catholic religious institution, he apparently stayed voluntarily. Hardly a prison.

He then proceeds to declare that the Stroud day is filled with a suffocating religious devotion. It ill behoves a priest to resent time spent in prayer.

The Catholic church would be better off if priests like this resigned and we started to ordain good women.
