Remembering the Suffragettes

Greystones Archaeological and Historical Society in association with Greystones Municipal District and Wicklow County Council held  an event to 

suff4

commemorate a historically important but often forgotten suffragette protest that took place on Greystones pier in 1910.
 A commemorative plaque was unveiled  and a re-enactment of the events was performed by the students of St. Brigid’s National School.
‘On the morning of 25th October 1910, the Irish Chief Secretary was on a tour of the dilapidated pier at Greystones in the company of local dignitaries when he was accosted by two leaders of the Irish suffragette movement, Hilda Webb and Hanna Sheehy Skeffington, who proceeded to demand votes for women.
 The campaign for votes for women, which had begun a half century earlier, had intensified in Ireland with the establishment of the Irish Women’s Franchise League (IWFL). The IWFL was impatient with the slow progress of the campaign and was willing to use ‘non constitutional’ methods in its demand for the vote.

A Friendly Encounter

In today’s Gospel passage we have the unusual report of a friendlyexchange between Jesus and one of the scribes.
The topic of which commandment is the most important seems to have been a common subject for discussion and debate in the time of Jesus, and the scribe’s enquiry is a genuine one, not a trap. The questioner is interested to hear what Jesus thinks about the matter. Jesus’ answer is in conformity with the Jewish practice then (and now) of reciting the passage from Deuteronomy which begins, “Listen, Israel…” To this commandment to love God, Jesus adds the instruction from Leviticus about loving one’s neighbour. The scribe applauds Jesus’ answer and adds that loving God is more important than offering sacrifice;
Jesus in turn commends the scribe for “speaking wisely” by adding this observation to the biblical text. By mentioning the list of personal faculties – heart, soul, mind and strength – Jesus and the scribe are expressing the notion of the whole person being oriented towards the Lord.
