WE in Australia of Irish descent are sad to hear of the problems in our fatherland with the economy and the church.
Now is the time for every man, woman and child to think and act positively to bring Ireland back to its previous glory -- economically and spiritually.
Spiritually, Ireland has the opportunity next year, when it hosts one of the great events of the Catholic church -- the 50th International Eucharistic Congress. There was a congress in 1032, when thousands of people came to Ireland to celebrate.
