How the media dealt with the Tuam Mother and Babies story

I was in the U.S. on my speaking tourwhen the story of the Tuam Babies, and the discovery of hundred of remains in a septic tank broke. Everywhere I went I was being questioned about it, people wondering how nuns could be so cruel and uncaring.

Since a cousin of my own was reputed to have been ‘dumped’ in that septic tank, it wasn’t a subject that I welcomed on my travels.

A brief review of my book, From the Outside

Anne Alhadef shared a link.

Shortly after reading Fr. Tony Flannery’s book From the Outside: Rethinking Church Doctrine (ISBN 978 1 78605 102 8) I read the 12 February 2021 Word on Fire article below. What a contrast between the two. For me the one was fearfully clinging to a misogynistic, patriarchal Church while the other was recognizing that faith is living, and therefore, changing.

   The reason for this Facebook page is that I have come to see the need for the changes Flannery outlines in his book.
