The work of Catholic priests lauded in the Seanad today

A nice tribute to the work of priests and religious like Fr Jason Murphy in the Seanad today. It follows an RTÉ Prime Time programme on suicide.

    Work of Catholic priests lauded in the Seanad…

    Nice to see this from Senator Joe O’Reilly in the Senate, prompted by the tragic death of Eden Heaslip and the role of Fr Murphy, a case where tragically a case of extreme bullying included some sectarianism. It needs to be said that there are so many good priests doing great work all the time, taking on greater burdens as they get older with shortage of priests a major issue. Since Covid we have become accustomed to viewing church services online including many funeral services. Priests do a good job here and are a comfort to the bereaved, I know with so many deaths it’s not easy for them to cope with them all, but they somehow manage to do it well, in fact I think this is where they are at their best.T he role of the priest is still a unique treasured part of Irish life and long may it continue.
