Spare a little charity

KEVIN MORRIS does not deny the charge of uncharitableness levelled at him by T. M. Ellis, perhaps therefore he needs to be reminded of the words of Our Lord on that subject. that 'the greatest of these is love (charity)'.

I would suggest that the 'ancient, inherited. irrational anti Romanism' which he alleges to be part and parcel of the baggage of Anglican parishes, is hardly likely to be eroded by letters such as his, which is not onla emotional. but bears the stamp of that irrationality of which he accuses Anglicans, when he tells us that the blood of St. Thomas More is on Anclican hands. Would he therefore claim that the victims of Mary Tudor were entitled to labelled 'on Catholic hands'?

The blood of any persecuted in the past is a direct result of sin as part of the human condition, and is not to be laid at the door of people who had no part in it, and who live hundreds of years after the event.

We are still living with the problems of such memories of past injustices in Ireland, and the result is not exactls, one of which Christians ought to be proud.
