Gerry Adams


Gerry Adams sees the Pope in Rome and reports on the ‘Peace Process’ to his religious boss


The Catholic Herald of 28th June 2002 carries the following report: Gerry Adams welcomed at the Vatican
Simon Caldwell

Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams met the Pope during a visit to the Vatican to discuss the Northern Ireland peace process. He greeted Pope John Paul II briefly on Wednesday last week, at the end of the Holy Father’s weekly general audience in St Peter’s square, Rome.

Mr Adams, whose party has been described as the political wing of the provision IRA, two days later met Vatican Foreign Minister Archbishop Jean-Louis Tauran to discuss the peace process started by the 1998 Good Friday agreement.

Afterwards, a statement was released by Joaquin Navarro- Valls, the Holy See Press Office Director. Mr Navarro- Valls said: "Gerry Adams, president of the Irish nationalist republican party, wanted to inform the Holy See of the current state of the peace process in Northern Ireland." Adams underlined the progress gained and insisted on the necessity of accelerating the rhythm of the different stages of the process with the purpose of achieving a peace based on justice as soon as possible.

"Later, referring to the violence that still marks the life of that population,he cited the important contribution offered by the Catholic Church and the Christian churches in general to create and promote a pedagogy of peace.

"In conclusion, it was agreed that by taking into due consideration, the regional identities in the process of European integration can certainly contribute to a lasting peace in Northern Ireland." Mr Navarro-Valls declined to comment on anything Archbishop Tauran might have told Mr Adams.

The dirty hand of the Vatican has been in Irish nationalism and republicanism from their inception.

It is no wonder Adams has to report to those who really call the shots in the battle to destroy the Protestants.
