Back To Ireland

Vox Hiberniae. The voice of the Irish.

 

 

We beg you, holy youth, that you shall come and walk again among us.

 

 

Good dog, good dog. Do you know, I just dreamt that the people of Ireland were calling me to go back there again. I was a slave in Ireland once a long time ago. What can it mean?

 

 

He who gave his life for you, he it is who speaks within you.

 

 

Canis, my dog, I know what I have to do. God wants me to go back to Ireland. He has work for me there. I will have to say goodbye to my family – and to you. I'll have to see who will come with me - for we must leave at once and sail west.

 

 

My family. You know I have to leave you and go back to the land where I was once a slave. Now I serve God and I must do what he has asked and return to the Irish people. I will miss you all very much and I will think of you in my prayers. God bless you.
