Living well is the best revenge
With so much empty-mutterings of ‘it was justified revenge’ being given as the assumed reason for the blaze in St. Mel’s, it may do well for us to ponder George Herbert’s words ‘living well is the best revenge’.
PS - George Herbert may have shuttled off his mortal coil in 1633, but some of us, the Irish people who are feeling 'satisfied' that St. Mel's burned to the ground, should really ask ourselves; 'how exactly are we living better since a priceless cathedral was burned?' This wouLd be better than the national sermonising of 'oh, the Catholic Church with all those abuse cases, they had it coming!'
