Maeve Binchy RIP

Unlike most other contemporary Irish authors, she never (as far as I know) attacked the Church or the Catholic faith, and from the one book of hers that I read (The Copper Beeches) she seemed to portray nuns and priests with considerable affection.

In one article she wrote, she stated that, though she had lost her faith, she would love to regain it. Perhaps she did before the end.

May she rest in peace.
