RESTORATION OF THE IRA CEASE-FIRE
STATEMENT BY
MOST REV. SEAN BRADY
ARCHBISHOP OF ARMAGH
July 19, 1997

I welcome the news of the restoration of the IRA cease-fire. I hope that it will become an important step on the road to lasting peace and that it signals the end of the use of violence to achieve political aims.
I commend the efforts of all who have worked to bring about this cease-fire. Now the task is to build the trust required to enable the peace, which so many desire, to become a reality. The peacemakers will have the prayers of many in their search for that trust.
