An Appeal for Circumspection

As we are all only too well aware, the situation in the Birmingham Oratory is far from happy, and has given rise to a great deal of comment and speculation in the press.
It would be most unhelpful were any Brother of the Little Oratory in London to be seen to be making public or semi-public statements on this matter.
We must refrain from any comment when asked by outsiders, other than to say that it is an internal matter for the Birmingham House, and must be careful not to discuss this situation amongst ourselves where there is the possibility of our being overheard. We must also refrain from entering the fray of comments in the blogosphere.
We should be praying - not indulging in conjecture and gossip.
