The last Catholic seminary in Ireland, St. Patrick’s Pontifical University, invited the former prime minister Leo Varadkar, an pro-choice advocate and active homosexual, for a tour of the seminary and a chance to speak to the seminarians.
Leo Varadkar, who will take his old job back this year, was welcomed to the seminary last week by Fr. Michael Mullaney, president of St. Patrick’s Pontifical University. He was given a chance to speak to the seminarians, and was publicly welcomed by the president on Twitter.
The pontifical university reported on Thursday that Mullaney was “delighted to get the opportunity to meet with Mr Varadkar and give him a flavor of the rich educational heritage of St. Patrick’s …”
This welcoming of persons openly against the teachings of the Church signifies the dwindling of the faithful in Ireland, with St. Patrick’s being the last seminary in Ireland, and Ireland only having 26 potential priests for its 6.9 million inhabitants.
