Not to be rude, this is a genuine question, but how is there a need for catholic missionaries in Ireland? It’s a catholic country...
Hiya! Ive gotten a few questions like this and have been deciding the best way to answer. There’s only one way to simply say it.
The faith is dead in Ireland.
While most people when asked their religion will say Catholic, it’s only a title here. They are not practicing Catholics. They dont go to mass on Sundays, or have a relationship with God. Because Ireland was so known for being Catholic, the country has become Culturally Catholic. People who go to mass on Sundays only go for appearance sake, or to socialize. That is not what mass is for.
Ireland was once known as the Land of Saints and Scholars, the land that preserved the faith from destruction when the world was trying to exterminate us, and evangelized the world. A land so on fire for the Lord that Oliver Cromwell could not conquer it and was was quoted saying “If it wasnt for those damn beads (rosary) i could have taken that island” But now it’s in need of re-evangelization.
The need for Catholic missionaries is massive here.
