After my complaint concerning Roger Bolton's remarks about the relics of St Therese I have had a continuing correspondence with the BBC. I questioned why Ms Pepinster and Mr Cornwell were chosen as spokespersons for the Catholic Church, and who generally were invited onto the Sunday Programme. I haven't yet received a very satisfactory answer, the email I received stressed the good relationship the BBC had with the Bishops' Media Office.
Despite this, others who have contacted the BBC have been asked to suggest names of people to speak for mainstream Catholicism in England and Wales.
I thought it would be useful if you would suggest the names of lay men and women or priest who would represent the authentic voice of the mainstream Catholicism. We don't want ranting extremists, just good Catholics who would be good on the media.
