choose lifeSermon by Monsignor Lorcan O'Brien
Sixth Sunday of Easter, B, 6th. May, 2018.

The referendum on whether or not to repeal the 8th. amendment of the Irish Constitution is a most serious question of conscience for the citizens of the Irish Republic, touching as it does the most basic of human rights, the right to life. Each of us bears a big responsibility in how we influence the outcome, even if we should decide not to vote. The decision of the Irish people will have consequences not only for the child in the womb but will shape respect for the right to life more generally. Today, it’s the child in the womb, tomorrow the fragile older person.
