“All the cruelty inflicted on the city of Rome by Nero and Attila, by the Greeks on Troy, by the Moors on Spain, or by Vespasian on Jerusalem – all has been inflicted on Ireland by the Puritans” (Dr. John Lynch, Archdeacon of Tuam. Eyewitness of the Puritan atrocities in Ireland.)
This book, written by Cardinal Francis Patrick Moran, the third Archbishop of Sydney and of Irish descent, provides an exhaustively documented account of the Irish Catholics' ordeals at the hands of Oliver Cromwell and the Puritans. It is both a horrifying and heroic tale. This document provides insight into the heinous and murderous measures that these malevolent individuals were willing to take to eradicate the Catholic faith in Ireland. However, the tenacity of a virtuous clergy and the power of divine grace enabled the Catholics of the land to endure the terrible storm, remain steadfast in their devotion to Christ and His Church, and ultimately triumph over the world, the flesh, and the devil—the only victory that ultimately matters.
