The Media, the politician and Lumen Fidei

In her letter to ‘We Are Church’, Sister Mary Reynolds claimed that “to ignore the opposition being expressed would put Mercy International at … Read More

Christian Unity Week – Where To?

Prayer itself is not unity. Several years ago, a well-known English Jesuit priest, Fr. Hugh Thwaites (1917-2012), gave an interview on Catholic television in which he discussed his conversion from Anglicanism to Catholicism. It was clear that, even so many years after his conversion, he still had a great affection for Anglicanism, because it was from the religion of his youth that he got a love of the Scriptures and of Our Lord. However, it was with the conviction that … Read More

Beware the Beginnings

Peter Hayes relates the story of how, following their grasp of power in 1933, Nazi thugs invaded the buildings of the National Association of German Industries, owned by Gustav Krupp, determined to get rid of Jews or other unmentionables. Of course, Krupp went to Hitler complaining at such unbecoming behaviour, but he was put in his place when the Fuhrer replied it was not his intention to curb the enthusiasm of the people in their vision for a brighter, better … Read More

The Media, the Archbishop & the Politician

On 29th December last, an article appeared in the Irish Daily Mail by Emma Jane Hade, under the heading ‘Josepha Madigan says her faith is ‘strong’ despite her liberal politics’. It is interesting to look at this article as an example of how the main stream media uses propaganda to influence public opinion in Ireland. The article tells us that Josepha is a ‘devout Catholic’ with a strong Catholic faith. We also learn that Josepha led the successful campaign for … Read More
