Forget about your own provincial concerns for a few minutes and check out what is going on in Ireland. This is a seismic shift of such magnitude it could end up rivaling the Reformation - or at least the split with the Old Catholics. If Austria and the Netherlands get on board this bandwagon, which they are already teetering on doing, it could be the end of centralised Catholicism in Europe as we know it. As I said before, I believe this is why the pope is being so aggressive in the New World.


IRELAND TURNS — 8 Comments

  1. This is truly encouraging. You know, I knew some very wonderful R.C. priests when I lived in Ireland and I’m so heartened to hear that many of their rank are now stepping forward and doing the right thing.

  2. If the Irishtocracy stop paying and becoming clergy and nuns, English-speaking catholicism will be in deep trouble.
    ‘Cause the money sure isn’t going to flow from Venezuela or Argentina, that’s for sure.

  3. Interesting but not a fair representation of the modern Catholic Church. Orthodox communities and movements are vibrant and bursting with young people. If you look at the video here, there is hardly anyone without grey hair. This kind of Christinaity is looking increasingly old-fashioned.

  4. Nearly all religions practiced by non-immigrants in the developed/Western world are having serious problems and they’ve been having them for at least 25 years. It’s not just a “conservative/liberal” thing-it’s a religion thing.
