Excerpt from The Ave Maria, Vol. 3: January 1, 1916 But Ireland was to render a still greater service three years after the friar's visit. It is an ill wind that blows nobody good; and it was the terrible Irish famine, which began in 1846, that brought crowding to our shores, Irish Catholics in untold numbers, who, as Mgr. Ward remarks, made our congregations what they are, and led to the multiplication of missions. Up to that time the English Catholics relied for the building of their churches almost solely on the donations of heredi tary Catholics and others of the upper classes; after the great Irish immigration it became possible to build from the pennies of the poor. Many missions owe their very existence, including serviceable churches and schools, to the large Irish congregations. (the Sequel, II, What was the number of Irish whom famine drove to England, and how many settled there, can not be known; but thousands remained. They and their descendants gave number and importance to our Catholic congregations, and their presence has contributed more than any other cause to the progress of Catholicism in England. (ibid., II. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work.
