The film's as close as Flannery will probably get
Irish Catholic has sources in Rome which confirm that:
1) chief concern is his views on priesthood;
2) that this is the reason they don't want him leading/involved with the Association of Catholic Priests;
3) that he has never been threatened with excommunication and there is no question of excommunication, noting that in other cases, including bishops, excommunication has only been applied where a priest has taken part in a simulated ordination ceremony for women.
