BADLY KEPT SECRET:

Franciscan friar holds masses for Blairs in No 10 (Christopher Morgan, 4/02/06, Times of London)

TONY BLAIR has been attending private Roman Catholic masses in Downing Street conducted by a Franciscan friar renowned for helping convert members of the Establishment to Catholicism.

The prime minister, an Anglican, participates in the services, although he does not take Communion with his wife Cherie, a Catholic, and their children.

Sources disclosed that the ceremonies are conducted in the sitting room by Father Michael Seed, the friar who prepared the Conservative MPs John Gummer and Ann Widdecombe to become Catholics.
