A Saint Speaks To Ireland

For your reflection, the homily St John Paul delivered to the young people of Ireland during his visit in 1979. He has important things to say.

Given that Ireland has abandoned its Christian faith, we might do well to listen to what he advises: when we think we are above religion we have lost something important.  Something else is needed - something that can only be found in Christ. In Christ we discover the true greatness of our humanity, make us understand our dignity as human being created in the image and likeness of God.
