WISDOM: “A disregard of promises, finally, is like a fungus, which imperceptibly spreads over the whole character, until the moral perceptions are perverted, and the man actually comes to believe he does no wrong, even in breaking faith with his warmest friends.” –William Makepeace Thayer, Ethics of Success, 1893

CHURCH: THE former Sacred Heart church at the Crescent in Limerick city closed six years ago, was recently bought for E700,000 by The Institute of Christ the King, a community of 64 priests who work worldwide.
