Comments: Dean of Winchester: Catherine Ogle

What a fantastic appointment! Catherine is an ideal choice for Winchester and at last the Leadership Team has a woman as part of the team. Best news all week!

Apparently Matthew 5:48 is taken quite literally by some.

Given the over reaction on this site to the perceived flaws of church appointees, most of whom as a wild colonial boy I've never heard of, this beginning paragraph of an article I read this morning jumped out at me.


"Amidst the constant cacophony of online outrage, what with the vicious trolling, public shaming and revelations of every minor personal failing, is it possible to be considered truly virtuous?"

Good Question.

The subject of the article? Why it is none other than the reaction to the canonization of Mother Theresa as a study in how reputations come under siege online.
