Irish National Caucus

Working for justice and praying for peace in Ireland... WELCOME TO THE IRISH NATIONAL CAUCUS BLOG Ceade Mile Failte -- hundred thousand welcomes! We believe the U.S. has a vital role to play by applying a single -- not a double-standard in its foreign policies towards human rights in Ireland. In particular, we believe the U.S. must not subsidize anti-Catholic discrimination in Northern Ireland. That is why the Irish National Caucus in 1984 initiated the MacBride Principles.

The God of Peace is Calling the Irish

The God of Peace is calling the Irish
Irish News. June 11, 2005

From FATHER SEAN McMANUS, President, Irish National Caucus, Capitol
Hill, Washington DC

THE Irish Peace Foundation was launched by the Irish National Caucus
on June 8 2005 to better reflect that Ireland - by the grace of God
and by the efforts of good men and women in Ireland, Britain and the
USA - is entering a 'post-conflict' stage.

The Irish Peace Foundation is exempt from federal tax so
contributions are tax-deductible.

The Irish Peace Foundation was inspired by Pope John XXIII who in his
1963 encyclical, Pacem in Terris likened peace to a house built on
four pillars: truth, justice, love and freedom.

The Catholic Church teaches that "action on behalf of justice is a
constitutive dimension of the preaching of the Gospel" (Justice in
the World. Synod of Bishops. Rome 1971).

Pope Paul VI said: "If you want peace, work for justice."
And the late Pope John Paul II inspired us by his efforts for world

The American Protestant Old Testament scholar, Walter Bruggemann,
tells us: "In biblical faith, the doing of justice is the primary
expectation of God."

Dr Martin Luther King told us that there was no peace without justice
or justice without peace

The Irish Peace Foundation is dedicated to building the House of
Peace in Ireland by education, nonviolence, forgiveness and

The foundation has no foreign principal and does not support any
group or party in Ireland.

Naturally our first constituency is
Irish-Americans and all Americans of goodwill.

But we want to include the worldwide Irish - "wherever green is
worn", wherever Irish hearts beat with pride in their heritage, with
a love of their homeland and a desire for its well-being and peace.

Fr,Sean Im sure you agree"The Irish Peace Foundation"is a complete waste of other people money.Unless sinn fein/ira give up terrorist activity and criminality for good.

The IRA have their own form of justice when they murder innocent men,women and children without mercy.Sean,have yet to read your condemnation of all the atrocities carried out by sinn fein/ira.

In the past innocent Irish Americans gave their hard earned dollars for other peace projects in Ireland.Where did all this money go????

The Catholic Church is the richest organiztion in the world.How much money are they giving to"The Irish Peace Foundation"????

Fr,Sean McManus,

Having read most of your comments in the Irish National Caucus site.It would appear you are oath bound to resist all non-catholic religions.

From your statements it is obvious you are anti-British with bigoted republician ideals.You dont appear to believe in forgiveness or reconciliation.

With these observations in mind how can the"Irish Peace Foundation" or "House of Peace" be of any real value for money????
