Update: Galway Historian Reveals Truth Behind 800 Orphans in Mass Grave

Yesterday I wrote (at http://wp.me/p5Z3-jM) about the discovery of a mass grave containing the remains of about 800 forgotten infants and children who died at a Mother and Baby home for pregnant, unmarried girls and young women. The home in in Tuam, County, Ireland, was run by the Bon Secours sisters. Now officials are to meet to discuss the “horrific details” emerging from the discovery.

Ireland’s junior minister for education and skills, Ciaran Cannon, said an inquiry was needed to determine the facts surrounding the unmarked burial site.

Details may be found in an article by Brian Mcdonald in the Independent at: http://goo.gl/Whhl4T.


I find it breath taking that the Church has the sheer gall to think it has any role in this matter now. It feels insulting that they now want to put up a memorial for something that happened on their watch, that was institutionalized by them.


It’s also galling for the church to say “this is not a diocesan matter….”! Where’s the Christian responsibility for atoning for the sins of the church!
