Press Association – A vigil for expectant mothers has taken place during a day of prayer at Knock, Co Mayo

A senior Catholic cleric has told a vigil for expectant mothers that abortion can never be justified.

During a day of prayer at Knock, Co Mayo, Bishop Brendan Leahy, the recently-installed Bishop of Limerick, voiced opposition to new legislation that would allow pregnancy terminations in limited circumstances.

“The direct taking of the life of an unborn child cannot be justified on the grounds of intention in the case of a mother’s threatened suicide which ought to be treated by other means,” he said.

I couldn’t see any expectant mothers in the pictures. Where were they? I did however, see the rooftop of the abode of my deceased uncle – across the road from the shrine.
An aside: My uncle made a mint from selling ‘holy water’ that was housed in washed out milk bottles. The last laugh was on him – as he laughed all the way to the bank at the expense of the ridiculousness of pilgrims’ beliefs. He travelled the globe every year of his life for months on end, with his family of five, that was generously afforded him from the proceeds of religious regalia.
