Days Of Decision in Ulster
The militant Irish republican Gerry Adams and the fire-breathing unionist preacher Ian Paisley have long symbolized the irreconcilable extremes of Ulster politics. But over the next few days, they have the chance to lead the province into a new era of democratic self-rule.
A mellowed and softened Gerry Adams makes his case this weekend to cooperate with Northern Ireland's reformed police forces. PLease pray for a peaceful and uniting outcome.
God bless the Irish!
