Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Now, That's A Priest For You

Sparring with the altar guild and bucking the local Planned Parenthood are for little-leaguers. Here's a real man for you ~ standing up to the Mafia, an act which got this priest's predecessor murdered for his troubles.

Last October troops were drafted on to the streets of a lawless town in southern Italy after a spate of killings linked to the local mafia. But with many living in fear, one campaigning priest is risking his life to stand up to the notorious Comorra gangs - despite the fact they murdered his colleague for doing the same. As the Greeks, say, axios!
