Paying my respects to this good man today. This short interview is great. Suaimhneas síoraí dó.
Bishop Fintan Monahan’s tribute to Fr Micheál MacGréil, SJ, RIP. Fear gaelach, sagart dílis, scoláire díograiseach. A man who stood up for the underdog. His academic work on prejudice and tolerance in Ireland was highly respected. via @YouTube
What is a member of the Oireachtas Committee on Members Interests doing on @morningireland making ANY comment on a case that might be before the Committee for consideration?
May Cardinal Pell RIP. A bright and brave man, a friend of Ireland, who thought clearly and spoke directly. His treatment by the Australian justice system showed the danger of trial by media. His prison writings were an example of getting good out of an evil situation.
Pope Benedict XVI remembered - a great thinker who stressed the importance of Faith and Reason for making political decisions.
