Catholic bishop says churches should stay open like the Church of England

From The Telegraph-

Catholic churches should follow the Church of England to keep their doors open outside of services, the bishop of Portsmouth has said.

Philip Egan complained that on a recent visit outside his diocese he had been unable to visit any churches because they had all been shut.

In a Tweet posted on Sunday he said: "Why oh why?! Just spent a few days outside the Diocese but every Catholic church I tried to visit was locked.

The Church of England recommends that its churches keep their doors open outside service times as best practice.

It says churches are actually more likely to be attacked when they are locked, "possibly as criminals feel they are less likely to be disturbed in a closed church than one where anyone could appear at any time".
