OVER EIGHTY YEARS ago there took place in the city of Dublin the infamous Easter Rebellion. Members of the Irish Republican Army and the Marxist Citizen Army knowing that the British Army was involved in a life-and-death struggle with Germany in the Great War, seized the General Post Office and surrounding area in Central Dublin and proclaimed an “Irish Republic”. What is not so well known and what in this ecumenical age has become suppressed history, is the fact that the Irish Republican revolutionaries and murderers had received the Papal Blessing on their actions. For the aim, then as now in the 1990’s was to create an all-Ireland state with Roman Catholicism as the State Religion.
