15 Years is a Long Time to Wait

In support of petitioning the Catholic Church to beatify the Victims of the Irish Hunger. This has been in the Congregation For the Causes of the Saints for 15 years.

By Bill Fahey

The Irish people have done more for the Catholic Church over the years than any
other group.  Their missionaries and emigrants spread the Faith all over the
world.

The leadership in Ireland seldom recognized the good work being done. That is a
big reason why I started the effort to have the The Irish Hunger Martyrs
beatified. It has been in the Congregation For the Causes of the Saints for 15
years. It would be a good time to recognize these martyrs and show some respect
for their deaths and suffering for their Faith. They were simple, hard working
people who showed exceptional courage and loyalty. They are role models for all of
us
