An Irish reader writes:A BBC top political correspondent here in Northern Ireland – Martina Purdy – is taking tentative steps towards religious life with the Sisters of Adoration & Reparation. Originally from West Belfast (predominantly a Nationalist/Republican area- not like ‘your’ Republicans…) but reared in Canada she had a high reputation among politicians across the spectrum here. All of them very supportive.I know it was a shock to many of her colleagues, my brother in law for one, who works as a news producer at the BBC.What is the Spirit saying to the Church at Ireland?Adoration and reparation are what the Irish (and American) Church badly need right now. So bravo Ms. Purdy!
