Power of forgiveness…

CHARITY worker Michael McGoldrick, whose son (also Michael), was shot dead by the LVF 10 years ago has died in Moldova. Mr McGoldrick is remembered as a humble man who forgave his son’s killers. “Bury your pride with my son,” he urged the warring sides in the Drumcree parade unrest. A friend of Michael’s once wrote on a website: “Michael still hopes to meet someday the father of the murdered founder of the LVF, Billy Wright – to shake his hand in recognition of a common sorrow, and a common faith in resurrection.” I’m not what you’d call religious, but you have to admire McGoldrick’s faith.
