Jumped ship on the 10th anniversary. Didn't May 3rd 2017 mean anything to him?  

You would think that the team would have had other things on their minds that day and if Madeleine had been abducted, how spiteful it would have been for Linnett to have chosen that day to resign.  This would have been a kick in the teeth for the McCanns.

Strange choice of day to resign.  Doesn't look good imo. Either a result of the Amaral appeal and/or shifting of £500k or the fund is near ready to be closed, maybe all of this.

Michael Linnett and his membership of the powerful, Catholic, Catenian Association

Post by Tony Bennett on 27.05.17 13:31

It seems that, as a forum, we have rather forgotten about Michael Linnett's his high-level connections, which include >>>

* Being married to one of the world's richest women

* Having been awarded a rare Papal Medal for 'Services to Children, and

* His membership of the influential, powerful, secretive, very well connected and 'Masonic' Roman Catholic Association, the Catenian Association.

So here's a round-up of some information about Linnett and the Catenian Association:

============

1. THE INDEPENDENT ARTICLE, 1999

       
Alarm over secret Catholic 'mason' group

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/alarm-over-secret-catholic-mason-group-1122460.html

 
HOME OFFICE ministers are becoming increasingly concerned about the secretive activities of a group of Catholic "Freemasons", the Catenians.

A special report by the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee has highlighted fears that members of the Catenian Association, which is thought to include top-ranking police officers and judges, are using their influence to pervert the course of justice.

The role of the Association came to light during a two-year investigation into Freemasonry conducted by the Committee.

Acting on the advice of the Committee, the Government has ordered the police and judiciary to set up their own databases listing membership of masonic lodges. But individuals are under no legal obligation to reveal their masonic links; and the database will not cover Catenians.

The report, Freemasonry in the Police and the Judiciary, states: "It is estimated that they [the Catenians] number around 11,500. Although this figure shows that the Catenians are far fewer in number than the Freemasons, this does not mean that similar concerns are not raised relating to their influence on the criminal justice system. Where points of principle relating to secretive societies are made in this report, they apply equally to other organisations of the same nature."

The Freemasons have attacked the Government for scrutinising their activities while not also focusing on groups like the Catenians who, like the Freemasons, are exclusively male. Catenians are hand-picked from the Catholic community and, to gain entry, applicants must be sponsored by a member.

The membership list is a closely guarded secret and new recruits are required to take an oath of allegiance to their "brothers". These oaths are made at secret ceremonies, held in hotels or golf clubs, where members wear special insignia including a Maltese cross and ceremonial collar denoting the "circle" to which they belong, as well as pendants and sashes.

The organisation, which was founded in 1908 in Manchester as the Chums Benevolent Association, has its own website. This describes the organisation, which operates worldwide, as a brotherhood that meets to "foster and develop social bonds among members and their families".

The Catenian Association is quick to quash any parallels between the activities of its members and those of Freemasons. "Like most organisations we regard information such as our list of members as privileged," added a spokesman.

"I don't like to use the word 'secretive' but many people would not answer if you asked them if they were a member. It's not like being a member of a tennis club."
============
2. MICHAEL LINNETT RECEIVES A PAPAL AWARD 

A NOTTINGHAMSHIRE man been recognised by Pope Benedict XVI for his work to help orphans find new families.

Michael Linnett was trustee at West Bridgford-based adoption agency Faith in Families for more than 35 years.

He has now been presented with the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice (For Church and Pope Medal) – the highest award non-clergy can receive from the Pope.

Mr Linnett said: "It's a great honour to receive the Papal Medal and a very humbling experience, particularly as I am aware that there are many people who give generously of their time and expertise for the good of others."

Having now retired from his work as trustee, Mr Linnett said he felt privileged to have worked with Faith in Families and on behalf of the children and families with whom they work.

The Rt Rev Malcolm McMahon, Bishop of Nottingham, presented the medal during a ceremony at St Barnabas Cathedral in Nottingham city centre on June 5.

The event also gave family and friends the chance to celebrate Mr Linnett's work with the charity over the years.

Mr McMahon said: "I am delighted that the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, has granted Michael this honour in recognition of the significant and outstanding commitment he has given to Faith in Families."

Sumerjit Ram, chief executive of Faith in Families, said: "Through his hard work and commitment, Michael has ensured that we maintain the reason we exist: providing a growing range of excellent services to disadvantaged children and families."

Also attending the event was The Lord Mayor of Nottingham, Councillor Michael Wildgust, who said the board of trustees had ensured that the vital work started more than 60 years ago, continued.

Staff and trustees, past and present, adoptive parents and volunteers took part in the proceedings.

Also invited to sing was the choir of Trinity School Nottingham.

Faith in Families, formerly known as the Catholic Children's Society, Nottingham, was founded by the Rt Rev Edward Ellis, Bishop of Nottingham in 1948.

The society was dedicated to helping orphans find a new Catholic family.

Mr Ellis was inspired to establish the society when a distressed mother left a newborn baby on the steps of the cathedral in Nottingham.

Moved by the fact that many children have to grow up without a caring family, Mr Ellis decided to do something about it.

Leicester-based Charles Street Buildings property investment and development group has assets worth close to £520 million. Tea girl to multi-millionaire Freddie Linnett is a director and leading shareholder in the successful family-owned company. 

The Murphy family, including Freddie Linnett’s uncles Hughie and Paddy Murphy, came to Great Britain from Ireland in 1945. They settled in Leicester and set up Murphy Bros, a civil engineering business where Freddie used to act as secretary and tea girl. On the back of the post war property boom the business moved into aggregates and transport. The transport company was sold off to the British Electric Traction Company in 1968 and the proceeds used to build up the commercial property business. 

Irish-born Freddie Linnett – who had a reputation for hard work – became a director and inherited her stake in the company on the death of her uncles in the 1990s. At that time she was the richest woman in the country behind the Queen. 

She married Leicester accountant Michael Linnett, while the day to day running of the company was taken over by Freddie’s brother Hugo Murphy, whose wife and sons are also directors. 

Dealing primarily in property development, sales and lettings, Charles Street Buildings is very successful. Based in Thurmaston, the company is consistently profitable. The Thurmaston site also includes a retail park which is home to many of the UK’s major retail brands. 

The group’s portfolio includes major property interests in the city and county of Leicester, but also across the UK, Ireland and Guernsey, including, offices, retail premises, warehouses and industrial units totalling five million sq ft, some of it let to the Government on long leases. The company is a patron of Leicestershire Chamber of Commerce. Freddie Linnett also holds directorships of a number of other property companies. 

Sixty-two year old Freddie Linnett – a keen golfer – is active in charitable fund raising, in particular the Ireland Fund of Great Britain. The fund – founded in London in 1988 – supports Irish communities in Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Republic with grants for social and educational projects.

6. PAPAL AWARD FOR FELLOW ROMAN CATHOLIC, JIMMY SAVILE (from Wikipedia)

Savile was honoured with a Papal knighthood by being made a Knight Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of Saint Gregory the Great (KCSG) by Pope John Paul II in 1990.[167] After the scandal broke, the Catholic Church in England and Wales asked the Holy See to consider stripping Savile of the honour. In October 2012, Father Federico Lombardi told BBC News:[url=news:[168][168][/url]


QUOTE >>> [The Holy See] firmly condemns the horrible crimes of sexual abuse of minors, [and the honour] in the light of recent information should certainly not have been bestowed...As there does not exist any permanent official list of persons who have received papal honours in the past, it is not possible to strike anyone off a list that does not exist. The names of recipients of papal honours do not appear in the Pontifical Year Book and the honour expires with the death of the individual.

@zampos Masonic Catenians, that's a new one. Is that like the Jewish Muslim Society? Lol #McCann


Maybe "Michael Wright" would like to read this, and bring himself up to speed with the organisation:


Saturday 25 September 1999

Alarm over secret Catholic 'mason' group.

HOME OFFICE ministers are becoming increasingly concerned about the secretive activities of a group of Catholic "Freemasons", the Catenians.

[size=18]The Catenians: A brotherhood of faith[/size]
Paul Monks describes the work of the Catenian Association

Members of the Catenian Association at a recent Cork Circle President’s Sunday Mass in Gougane Barra, Co. Cork.
Paul Monks
The Catenian Association is an international brotherhood of Catholic business and professional men. We meet monthly in a relaxed and social environment to pray, socialise and encourage each other in our religious, family and business lives.
The Catenians were founded in 1908 by a group of Catholic men (mainly Irish) in the English Midlands. The association soon spread from the UK back to Ireland and today has members in Scotland, Wales, Australia, Africa, India, Goa and Malta, with over 10,000 members worldwide.
In an increasingly secular world, it is really important for Catholics to have the opportunity to relax in friendly company and be able to discuss issues relevant to Catholic family life in today’s society. It can be quite nice to enjoy being a Catholic without having to be ‘on guard’ all the time lest we accidentally offend someone!
Our relationship with the Catholic Church itself is quite interesting. Catenians support the Catholic Church and many members are involved in local parish activities. However, clergy and religious are not allowed to be members. This arrangement preserves Catenian independence, allowing us be very supportive of our Church, without in any way becoming subservient to it.
The association is non-political and is not a Catholic action pressure group.
Catenians are organised into local branches called ‘Circles’. In Ireland, we meet in Dublin, Cork and Enniskillen. Circle meetings always start and end with prayers and are conducted in a respectful manner with no bickering or politics allowed to mar the proceedings. Prayers for the sick and also deceased members of each Circle are said at every meeting.
The meetings usually last about an hour and are followed by lunch/dinner etc as appropriate. This format provides ideal opportunities to socialise and also entertain visitors from abroad.
Family and friends are made very welcome at many events on our social calendar. Events typically include:
Annual President’s Sunday:This special Sunday commences with Mass, attended by Circle members, families and friends. The Mass may be followed by lunch and possibly include a visit to some place of cultural interest or scenic beauty.
Annual Mass for Deceased Members: This Mass is celebrated each November. It is a solemn affair as we offer prayers for deceased members. Surviving widows are made especially welcome as our guests.
Annual Clergy Night: We invite local Christian clergy to dine with us as our guests on one special night each year. The speeches at this event always seem to be very humorous - possibly due to liberal supplies of good wine!
Various other social events are decided by each Circle. 
This September our Cork Circle is celebrating its 500th meeting. A large contingent of visitors from Ireland and the UK is expected. Everyone will receive a really warm Irish welcome in Cork and it’s rumoured that a visit to a certain distillery might just be on the cards.
We retain a special place in our hearts for the widows of former members. We keep in touch with them throughout the year and invite them to many of our social gatherings. 
Like most far flung organisations we have our own magazine, which is called Catena and it’s published monthly. It allows members (and their wives, of course!) to remain aware of events and news in Catenian circles worldwide. Happily, it’s actually a very good read.
Each year the current president of each Circle has the opportunity to select a charity of his choice, to benefit from contributions made by members of his Circle. This ensures that, over time, a wide range of charities benefit.
For the golfers in the association there is an active golf society and an Irish Catenian Golf Championship is held annually.
Catenians support youth volunteers working for Catholic charities active overseas. This benefits people in the country/community where the project is located and also the personal development of the individual concerned.
Our dedicated Catenian Bursary Fund invites applications from young people for financial support for their chosen projects. In 2014, grants were made across the association to over 900 applicants.
The most recent recipient of a bursary grant (in Ireland) is Eoin O’Loghlen of Ballyvaughan in Co. Clare. 
Eoin recently set off to work on a project in Kenya. Some of our members met him recently to present a cheque from the Bursary Fund. On his return, Eoin will be invited to speak at dinner after a Circle Meeting about the project and his experiences. We look forward to this with great interest.
The Catenian Association also supports members and dependants who may be in difficulty or need. Our dedicated Benevolent Fund can provide financial assistance to alleviate their hardship.
Like most organisations, new blood is the most essential ingredient for continued existence! We are always pleased to consider applications from suitable candidates who must be practising Catholic men of good character and standing.
We usually invite applicants to dine with us so they can see what we’re like socially.  Of course this means we get to know them a little better too – before any commitments are made.
 
If you (or anyone you think might be interested), would like to learn more about the Catenians in Ireland, please visit www.thecatenians.com. Otherwise, email us at: info@thecatenians.ie. Either way, we’d love to hear from you.
