Pray For Our Sinners
PRAY FOR OUR SINNERS documents Sinéad O’Shea’s return to her hometown, Navan, in Ireland in search of those who fought against the Catholic Church which until recently exerted almost complete control over the country. There she discovers the ways in which towns people found a way to resist. These astonishing yet uplifting stories use rare first hand testimonies to describe the horrors of mother and baby homes, the prevalence of violence against children and the co-dependent relationship between the Church, State and its people. Through the voices of its gently heroic characters, Pray for Our Sinners depicts a fragile society full of fear, quiet dissent and love.
