Joy at Eucharistic Congress

Sir, – As a Missionary of the Holy Rosary from South Africa on leave in Ireland, I was inspired and gladdened attending the opening of the International Eucharistic Congress, by the extraordinary, warm, caring love flowing all around me. It was a glorious celebration of true Irish hospitality, of community and real spirituality.

It cleansed from my mind much of the negativity I had been hearing about the church. The organisation, the behaviour of clerics and participants, the superb singing, the palpable joy were heartwarming. – Yours, etc,
