Feeney. Referring to the group's stand, tne letter from the sacred congregation declared: ". . . It is clear that the doctrine presented (by the group), . as genuine Catholic teaching is far from being such, and can do nothing but «rave harm to those who ire In the church and to those outside tt." The communication from the Vatican also named Fr. Feenev and strongly criticized him for his' Dart in the controversy. Nol Satisfied The censure apparently referred o Fr. Feeney's vi 8 orous public attacks on archdiocesan leaders including Archbishop dishing ;,,,d the Most Rev. J 0 | m j. w rJ8ht; aux . ihary bishop.
