DEATH BY STARVATION 22

Our Holy Father  Pope Francis spoke out in honor  and support of the Armenian Martyrs when the Armenian Church canonized those Martyrs. Surely it would be appropriate, timely, and most welcome if Pope Francis were, at the very least to refer to the Irish Hunger Martyrs and make some comments as to the suffering and the death of so many in such a horrible way during the Irish Famine and Great Hunger of 1845 – 1852. Our Holy Father, I applaud the work you have done and continue to do, I admire the courage it is most obvious you have. Can you, during your upcoming visit to Ireland, search in your mind for a way to  acknowledge the sacrifices and suffering so painfully endured by our ancestors on the very ground where you tread? Thank you and with respect… Michael Walshe

Pope Francis will be in Ireland on August 26, 2018 for World Family Day.Our blog has recorded the the horrific conditions endured by by the victims of the Hunger who died for their Catholic Faith. They were offered food if they gave up their Faith. Much food was also exported out of Ireland while they were starving. The names of some of these victims are on Inquest reports and Church records.

We have already sent in the names of over 28,000 people who support our request for beatification. If you would like to add your name and contact the Pope, please use the following e-mail addresses of the Papal Nuncios and our website.
