Both my parents and grandparents (all RC) had bibles in their homes. One
is very old and belonged to my great-grandparents who were fanatical
catholics. I'd love the latter but there were too many children (typical
Catholics!) and my line doesn't have it. Maybe it depended on the family.

I too have heard this story about the RC Priest being the only one

at their RC School. I was told they never owned Bibles themselves, only the Priest etc.
had them. Whereas my children at a C of E School had always had to have a bible amongst
Margaret in Oz.
