FASTING: The health benefits of fasting from food have gotten a lot of attention in the last several years. What’s often forgotten in these discussions, however, is that fasting has been practiced for thousands of years not only for the sake of the body, but for the spirit as well.

REFLECTION: The Paulist Community is a society of apostolic life in the Roman Catholic Church. Founded in 1858 by New Yorker Isaac Hecker, the Paulists serve as ordained missionaries to North America. Their instinctive orientation is reaching out-particularly to those without faith or on the edge of faith, and to other believers.

Limerick Archbishops And Bishops Included STORY OF HORRIBLE TORTURES AND BUTCHERIES

How Terence Albert O’Brien Was Strangled. THE CASE OF BARON JOHN DE BURG

(By John M Hill )

Before me is a volume in parchment of 820 folio pages in the Latin tongue, which was given to me in Rome, on the Cause of the Irish Martyrs who died for their Catholic Faith from the reign of Henry VIII., King of England, from 1538 down to the reign of Queen Anne, which ended by her death in 1714. The volume treats on the evidence given in each case of the death of Archbishops, Bishop’s, secular priests, regular priests and lay brothers of ten Orders; ladies and gentlemen of the old Irish nobility, and men and women of the masses. They numbered in all 412. The Latin volume is of deep interest to all Catholics, especially those of Irish birth or of Irish blood born abroad. It is under the investigation Of the Cardinals and other legal experts attached to the Sacred Congregation of Rites, one of the departments of the Church universal through which the Sovereign Pontiff rules in spiritual affairs all Christendom. If the Sacred Congregation proves that all those Irish men and women suffered death for their Faith they will be canonised—raised to the supreme honours of the altars—by the Vicar of Christ in St. Peter’s on the tomb of the Galilean Fisherman.


The number of Archbishops proposed for canonisation is six . i.e.—Dermot O’Hurley, Archbishop of Cashel; Edmund MacGaurin, Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland; Peter Talbot, Archbishop of Dublin and Primate of Ireland; Malachy O’Queely, Archbishop of Tuam; and Richard Creagh, Arch-Bishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, The number of Bishops is eleven, i.e.—Hugo de Lacy, Bishop of Limerick; Edmund Tanner, Bishop of Cork; Redmund Gallagher, Bishop of Derry; Maurice O’Brien. Bishop of Emly; Eugene MacEgan, Bishop of Ross; Edmund Dungan, Bishop of Down; Heber McMahon, Bishop of Clogher; Patrick O’Healy. Bishop of Mayo; a Franciscan; William Walsh, Bishop of Meath, a Cistercian; Cornelius O’Devaney, Bishop of Down and Connor; and Terence Albert O’Brien, Bishop of Emly, a Dominican. And there are four lesser digntaries in the Cause, i.e., Thomas Moran, Dean of Cork; Thomas Courcey, Vicar General of Kinsale; George Power, Vicar General of Ossory, and John Walsh Vicar General of Dublin.

The secular, clergy killed numbers 38. Of the religious Orders the Cistercians head the list with 103 put to death. The Dominicans come next with 32 massacred in the monastery in Londonderry, plus Father MacFefge, O.P., 24 of His brethren massacred in their monastery at Coleraine, plus 42 killed at other places. The Franciscans had 82 killed, the Jesuits 5, the Augustinians 10. the Carmelites, 3, and the Trinitarians 2. The ladies and gentlemen of the old Irish nobility, and the men and women of the masses number 74 killed for their Faith. Many of these ecclesiastics and lay persons were put to death under peculiarly atrocious and horrible circumstances.
