Harkening back to the arrival of Hugh O'Neill in Rome 313 years ago. Stating that the hardships his Grace has been subjected to are nothing new in connection with Ireland, remembering the eleven Irish bishops that in 1647 paid a penalty for joining the confederates: Ireland was deemed in the way for English democracy...'and so they fell upon lands and people and priests and bishops and [swept] them aside, or wiped them off the face of the earth, or sold them into slavery, or made them homeless wanderers over the face of the wide wide world, experiencing in many a clime how tasteless is another's salt, how steep another's stairs.' Further history of these bishops; their sufferings will not have been in vain; projecting forward to Mannix's great welcome in Ireland.
