Quote of the Day
It has come to my mind, while thinking about the coming of the Holy Spirit, that we should pray for the Holy Spirit to come to give us wisdom and courage.

Perhaps we forget to ask for the power for lay people to stand forth, to speak up and to be apostles in the secular sphere.

Please God by working at it, by reflecting on the issues that you have raised, and co-operating with people like the Legion of Mary, improvements can be made.
His Eminence, Sean Cardinal Brady, Archbishop of Armagh
