At the beginning of this century a great Englishman, Cardinal Edward Manning, faced a similar situation. He had the vision to see and the courage to grasp the moment. As a result there is now a highly educated and very successful multitude of descendants of "bog Irish immigrants" enriching this England. The next incumbent of the See of Westminster would do well to study Manning and his life's work.
