Death by Starvation – 3

Part 3                                        Irish Hunger Martyrs

PROSELYTISM DURING THE HUNGER

See Cardinal Cullen’s Pastoral Letter on Proselytism. He mentions the slow MARTYRDOM suffered by the victims. { p. 425 }.

The hunger victims were offered food if they renounced their Catholic Faith. There were Religious Missions sent over from England to convert the starving Catholics. They refused the bribe and suffered starvation and death for their Catholic Faith. They also had to watch their children go through a slow starvation process in a daily state of agony.

Subjects : Proselytism at various locations in Ireland, Conditions in Co. Clare.

Irish Hunger Martyrs

MANY PEOPLE ARE AWARE OF THE GREAT HUNGER IN IRELAND
THAT CAUSED WIDESPREAD STARVATION FROM 1845-1852.
mother.jpg (44821 bytes)St Patrick.jpg (31979 bytes)

HOWEVER, MANY PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW THAT, AT THE SAME TIME, IRISH FARMS WERE PRODUCING PLENTY OF OTHER FOODS INCLUDING CORN, WHEAT, BARLEY, AND BEEF.  THIS FOOD WAS CARTED AWAY, PAST THE STARVING MILLIONS, AND TAKEN TO ENGLAND.

SOME PROTESTANT CHURCH MISSIONS IN ENGLAND SOUGHT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SITUATION BY TRYING TO “PROSELYTIZE” THE STARVING CATHOLICS.

THE STARVING VICTIMS WERE OFFERED FOOD IN RETURN FOR RENOUNCING THEIR CATHOLIC FAITH AND CONVERTING.  DURING THE FAMINE THERE WERE MORE THAN 125 MISSIONS IN IRELAND FOR THE PURPOSE OF CONVERTING CATHOLICS.

letter.jpg (80704 bytes)WE HAVE REQUESTED THAT THE VATICAN BEATIFY THE IRISH HUNGER MARTYRS WHO REFUSED FOOD AND EVENTUALLY STARVED TO DEATH IN SUPPORT OF THEIR FAITH.  OUR REQUEST IS BEING CONSIDERED BY THE CONGREGATION FOR THE CAUSES OF THE SAINTS AT THIS TIME.  CLICK ON THE LETTER TO THE LEFT TO VIEW THE LETTER WE RECEIVED CONFIRMING OUR REQUEST IS BEING CONSIDERED.

WE HAVE GATHERED MORE THAN 28,000 SIGNATURES IN SUPPORT OF THIS REQUEST.  WE HAVE FORWARDED THESE PETITIONS TO ROME.

WITH THIS WEB SITE, WE HOPE TO EDUCATE PEOPLE ABOUT THIS SYSTEMATIC EFFORT TO STARVE THE CATHOLICS INTO CONVERTING.  WE HOPE THAT, UPON SEEING THE DOCUMENTATION, YOU WILL ADD YOUR NAME TO OUR PETITION.

This is worth repeating. If you know of any unmarked Great Hunger graves please give details in the comments section.

Check here to see what Michael Blanch and others are saying about the campaign to give every Irish Hunger Victim a grave marker.

Research

New research by Bill Fahey

Despite the fact that detailed knowledge of  the Great Hunger was not  widely discussed  for many generations there are people who have kept the research alive. Bill Fahey is one of theses people and he and others like him who insist that respect for the Victims, of the so called Famine, be ongoing. Bill adds to his research findings every time he visits Ireland and he is currently working on a campaign to place grave markers in places where unmarked graves are found. On a trip, last year, he made contact with historians in County Kerry. Permission is now being obtained to place grave markers in this part of Ireland

Another goal that Bill has worked on, with passion,  for several years is a campaign to recognize the Victims of the Great Hunger with beatifification. Thousands of signatures have been collected in support of this and they have been submitted to the Vatican. It would be marvelous if Pope Francis would complete this effort by saying “yes” to the plea of Bill and others during his visit to Ireland next year.

Bill Fahey will be sharing details of his ongoing research so watch these pages for more.
