From Our Own Correspondent
A large body of Irish folk has gone to Budapest for the Eucharistic Congress. Among them is the Nuncio Apostolic. It was regretted that the Archbishop of Cashel was prevented from leading the C.T.S.1. pilgrimage, but the Bishop of Dromore is taking his place, accompanied by the Very Rev. Father McComisky, Adm. of Newry. Other Irish prelates who have gone are Mgr. Wall, the Archbishop of Dublin's assistant, and the Bishop of Galway.
I must say that I was surprised by the depth and strength of the interest which Ireland is taking in this year's Congress.
Hungary is far from Ireland, and not often talked about among us, but every Catholic's eye has turned to that present centre of devotion, and the graces of the Congress surely will be enjoyed in the length and breadth of our little island at Europe's end.
Among the papers read at the Congress will be one on " The Social Implications of the Eucharist," written by Professor Alfred O'Rahilly, and full, I am sure, of that intensity of thought and feeling which our Cork scholar puts into all his utterances. There will be a Gaelic paper, too, by Miss Wire NicAodhain.
