SAINT FRANCIS: “Being a peacemaker,” Friar Murray Bodo says, “can be a thankless task.” But the role of the peacemaker is essential, something Saint Francis of Assisi surely understood. He embraced those who were categorized as “the enemy” and offered himself as a living bridge of peace.

ST BRIDGET this 10th century poem which is attributed to her, adapted by Brendan Kennelly and excerpted below:

I’d like to give a lake of beer to God.

I’d love the heavenly

Host to be tippling there

For all eternity.

I’d love the men of Heaven to live with me,

To dance and sing.

If they wanted, I’d put at their disposal

Vats of suffering……….

I’d sit with the men, the women and God

There by the lake of beer.

We’d be drinking good health forever

And every drop would be a prayer.

WEDNESDAY PRAYER: Gather in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, Abbeyfeale on Wednesday afternoon at 3p.m to recite the Divine Mercy Chaplet for Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life. This prayer meeting will take place every Wednesday.

" Sceilg’s" Reply to Brian O’Higgins.

To the Editor. A Chara,

I should have left entirely to the judgment of your readers the letter you have just published from Brian O hUiginn only that my oration at the graveside of Fr. Michael O’Flanagan four months ago is made the basis of strangely belated strictures on the memory of the patriot to whom Cathal Brugha referred from the chair at the Inauguration of Dail Eireann as the most loyal and the most earnest priest that ever lived in Ireland,—the suspended priest, he might have added as was indeed implied, who won the General Election of 1918 and so made possible the constitutional ratification of the Proclamation of Easter Week. My graveside oration, delivered at twenty-four hours’ notice, was in your office next morning, published by you that week, and reprinted by you without alteration except the admitted addition of a necessary footnote, Brian thinks it appropriate to refer to It as "the pamphlet on the late Fr. O’Flanagan written by my friend Sceilg, and reviewed in your issue of November 28"—although the review, if such there were, has escaped my notice. Were Sceilg to write a "pamphlet" on Fr. O’Flanagan it would be a pamphlet showing at some thing like his full stature the gifted priest to whom the Pope presented a special gold medal in recognition of his brilliant Lenten and Advent sermons in Rome in 1912 and 1914; to Whom, while he and I were England’s prisoners in Melbourne, the venerable Archbishop there sent vestments and a chalice to enable him to say Mass even in his captivity; to whose death-bedside the Papal Nuncio and other dignitaries of the Church paid daily visits, at whose obsequies we had such striking evidence of the place he had won in the people’s hearts. In seeking out the passage which Jed Brian O hUiginn to state that I said "objections to Fr. O’Flanagan’s anti-papal outbursts were made only by the ‘envious’ or by persons of ‘defective understanding,’ " I find I said, not that he indulged In anti-papal outbursts, which I neither believe nor admit, but that his eloquence on his second visit to the United States a whole generation ago aroused envy in high places, which I personally knew to be true. Later, the envy manifested itself nearer home, and was aggravated by the malice of a whispering gallery, as I and hundreds of others knew also to be only too true. Of course, it never entered my mind that Brian O hUiginn could regard the cap as fitting himself. How could I or anybody else even dream that Brian na Banban envied Fr. Michael O’Flanagan, I happened to have been a patient at St. Ann’s Hydro, Blarney, when Brian O hUiginn and Fr. O’Flanagan came into conflict at the Sinn Fein Ard-Fheis a decade ago, and have no wish to contest Brian’s claim to the distinction of being "the first to challenge openly in a Republican assembly Fr. O’Flanagan’s harmful attacks": he is assured of the entire credit for his simultaneous protection of the Papacy and the Public Mind. That, I think, was about the time of Father O’Flanagan’s first occupancy of the Presidency of Sinn Fein, of which he had been responsible and efficient Vice-President for many years. And he was re-elected twelve months later in spite of certain elements of opposition on the veiled plea that he had taken an official appointment. Subsequently, he and I were invited to participate in a Radio production of the inauguration of Dail Eireann. He Consented, and rendered himself liable to expulsion from the organisation, somewhat as has happened to notable personalities in kindred bodies. I declined. Had I agreed, and been expelled in consequence, I should not regard myself as the less a Republican on that account. Neither did Fr. O’Flanagan. He and I, although no longer active in Sinn Fein, attended important conferences of that body a short time before his death, and everyone knows how active and welcome he was some time previously on Dublin platforms demanding the release of Republican prisoners then fasting to the point of death. I must say it seems to me utterly unworthy of Brian O hUiginn to refer to the departed patriot as the "poor priest estranged for years from his priestly duties, wandering to and fro between Ireland and the United States like a lost soul, and attacking most wantonly on American platforms such faithful colleagues as Mary McSwiney and Austin Stack." As Austin and I returned from New York in 1922, Austin told me that Fr. O’Flanagan and he had a pretty sharp clash there while I was away to the Coast. Subsequently Miss McSwiney told me that she and Fr. O’Flanagan disagreed In New York also. I was publicly and politically associated with him for a full quarter of a century,—more intimately during our world tour—and I never once found occasion to clash with him: on the contrary, I always found him conciliatory and tractable, earnest withal, simple and Joyous almost as a happy child. After the launching of Fianna Fail when rumours were rife that some of our people commendably exerted themselves to minimise the effect of the split thus created, it was said he did refer in America to Miss Mc-Swiney as fairy godmother of the new departure, and I know she indignantly resented the suggestion. I do not believe that the wanton attacks from American platforms to which Brian O h-Uiginn refers ever went beyond that, and my sources of information there have at no time been negligible, while I am, I hope, As solicitous as anybody else for the good name of our departed comrades. Such rumours are invariably magnified in the carrying; and I know well how hostile propaganda represented Father O’Flanagan and myself as pro-Communist in Australia, even at home. What actual proof has Brian O hUiginn that Fr. O’Flanagan wantonly attacked his colleagues when he was in America as Sinn Fein envoy after the launching of Fianna Fall? for that was the only occasion on which it could have happened. Fr. O’Flanagan spent two subsequent holidays in the United States while "estranged from his priestly duties," as has been said, but not in the character of "a lost soul." Meanwhile he had celebrated Requiem Mass at his father’s obsequies in his native parish. Reaching San Francisco on the eve of a Church festival, he was asked by his host. Mgr. Rogers, who fully knew his position in Ireland, to celebrate High Mass in his pariah. Mgr. Rogers accompanied him back to Ireland; and as I happened to be amongst the first to meet them on their reaching Dublin, the distinguished Monsignor, Whose unfailing practice was ‘to get all requisites for his Church and hospitable presbytery from Ireland, told me with joy how delighted he and his flock were to have Fr. O’Flanagan as celebrant of that High Mass. I need not labour that aspect of the matter. He soon spent a second, and last, holiday in the United States mainly, I think, in connection with the deepsea goggles he had invented and a device to mitigate sea-sickness in which also he was long interested. With him on the second holiday was a Basque priest who previously had endeared himself to numbers of people here on the occasion of the Eucharistic Congress, and was, in fact, specially entertained at Sinn Fein headquarters. Before setting out on their voyage, Fr. O’Flanagan, I think, took him to Maynooth. The visitor still shared the Basque eagerness to shake off the Spanish yoke, as we have been eager to regard England’s difficulty as Ireland’s opportunity. On account of the Communist complexion of the new Republican Government in Spain —though its inauguration was loudly welcomed by leaders of the Free State Government here—the whispering gallery In America branded the two visiting priests as Communists, whereas the real Communists were fighting or intriguing against General Franco. Fr. O’Flanagan had the courage to spend a further holiday in Spain—probably on the invitation of the Basque priest-—to see things there with his own eyes. How anxious he was to study the Catholic position there, on account of what we were told by priests no well-informed as Dr Peter Magennis and Fr. John Condon, I know personally since our own casual visit there twenty years ago. I must not let myself be tempted into a discussion of the political relations between the Papacy and Ireland. From the lapse into heresy of Henry VIII until the practical usurpation of the English throne by King William—practically a period of a century and a half—successive Popes exhorted and armed-Ireland to wage war for the Faith against England. Outside of that, the Papal policy has another aspect: from the exploitation of the Bull of Pope Adrian IV down to the Papal attitude towards the Plan of Campaign in the days of Archbishop Croke and Archbishop Walsh and the well-known fate of Mgr. Persico. From my knowledge of Papal history, I am only too conscious that it is not a subject for newspaper controversy by the uninformed or the half-Informed, and from my long intimacy with Father O’Flanagan, I feel fully satisfied —regardless of prejudiced statements to the contrary—that, on the whole, he endeavoured when dealing with the subject to handle it with becoming restraint, although his feelings cannot have been sweetened by the treatment of Dr. Michael O’Hickey whom he met a good deal in Rome, or the reported attitude of Dr. Cattaneo, Papal Representative, towards our mission in Australia.

As my estimate of the lovable priest whom it is such a lasting happiness to have had as friend remains Unaltered, may I repeat,—for the information of those who may not have the opportunity to read the oration here under discussion—the passage enshrining the ties which will keep his memory among my mind’s choicest treasures:

I have shared his cabin in the great oceans of the world, and shared his ward and served his Mass in Britain’s dungeons at Botany Bay and Melbourne. No one living has heard him speak so often in the great cities of America and Australia and elsewhere; and I can solemnly say here at his open grave that I never heard one word fall from his lips that was not worthy of an Irish patriot priest.

Brian O hUiginn I feel sure will be among the first to realise that it is due to the memory of him whose lips are sealed forever to state

1. Why he was first censured instead of being upheld as the young priests of Limerick were?

2. Why he was first suspended, and why the suspension was removed?

3. Why he was again suspended; and when, why, and by whom the suspension was removed? Candid answers to these questions will remove whatever prejudice may yet remain against the outstanding priest who, with good warrant, held his head high while he freely gave his all for Mother Ireland and human liberty. Whether answered or not. I believe his constancy will bear fruit, and that it will be long again before an Irish priest, young or old, is so inconsiderately treated.
