Ireland must guard against a loss of faith

Filed under: Ireland,The world today — John Maass @ 6:48 am

From Catholic World News:  Ireland must guard against a loss of faith and the encroachment of secular ideology, Pope Benedict XVI, warned a new ambassador from that country to the Holy See.As he accepted the diplomatic credentials of the new envoy, Noel Fahey, the Holy Father remarked that “for over 1600 years, Christianity has shaped the cultural, moral and spiritual identity of the Irish people.” That faith remains the key to the nation’s character, he said.

The Pope said that the recent economic boom in Ireland has been a blessing blessing, since “prosperity has undoubtedly brought material comfort to many, but in its wake secularism has also begun to encroach and leave its mark.”

That’s the way it is everywhere………
