Brothers, sisters, dear social poets,

1. Dear social poets

This is what I like to call you: social poets. You are social poets, because you have the ability and the courage to create hope where there appears to be only waste and exclusion. Poetry means creativity, and you create hope.

A letter from Archbishop Neary

In my recent blog about Geraldine’s funeral I mentioned that Archbishop Neary, while forbidding me from celebrating her funeral in the Cathedral, did not make any direct contact with me. So, to be fair, I am publishing a letter I received for the Archbishop a few days ago.

Archbishop’s House,
Tuam, Co. Galway
Telephone: (093) 24166
Fax: (093) 28070. 16 SEPTEMBER, 2021

Dear Fr. Tony

I was very sorry to hear of Geraldine’s death at the end of August, and I write now to offer my sincere sympathy and the support of my prayers to you, Frank, Marguerite, and the extended family.
