April 28th is the the Feast day of that great Saint  St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort. His Marian teachings have, to my mind, never been equaled, and if some of our readers, like me, are struggling through the Ninevah devotions with Father Richard Heilman in preparation for the 100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions, then they will be very familiar with this holy saint.

To the large Irish Catholic diaspora, proud of its heritage and long history of numerous saints, martyrs and missionaries, together with its heroic faithfulness during those gruesome penal years, this revelation came as quite a shock. But there is no denying the truth of Fr Groeschell’s analysis; Ireland had changed within a few decades from being a once pious Catholic nation, to becoming a generally secular one, largely scornful of its Catholic past. Yet this abandonment of the Faith that had sustained them throughout their difficult history has brought neither joy nor hope to the Irish population. Let’s borrow a few suggestive words of the current U.S. President: “We must make Ireland great again”… meaning, of…
