Plenty to pray for this Easter
IF ATTENDANCES at Mass and participation in religious rituals such as the Stations of Cross have increased dramatically this Easter, as we report today, it must mean that people are praying more too.
What on earth do we have to pray for this Easter that we didn't last Easter? The question, of course, is rhetorical. We have lots.
We could pray for a sighting of green shoots in the US economy, which might help our own. We could pray that the National Asset Management Agency buys up all those debts at prices that will not bankrupt our little Nama Republic.
