The Wolfe Tones- Hail Glorious St. Patrick
Well, I'm only a quarter Irish on my mother's side, but in the context of recent news this recording just 'wrecks' me. What it must be like to be a Catholic of full Irish blood, I dread to think.
What has Ireland done to herself? Or I should ask how has she allowed it to be done?
Sorry this is all I could manage tonight.
Saint Patrick pray for Ireland and for her priests in their hour of trial.. And with special thanks to those Vincentian Irish priests who helped form me in the faith.
(btw the other quarter is Welsh , and on my father's side, French Huguenot. Takes all sorts to make a Catholic!)
God bless you now. Intend to be back here on Thursday DV
