One Response to “Daniel Mannix: His Legacy” – Conference this Saturday

  1. Stephen K says:

    One of the things one learns (hopefully) is that we are all flawed and so good and bad can be found or can come, potentially, from all of us. Archbishop Mannix is no different. But the conference sounds like it is going to be a bit of a love-fest for him, the Movement and the DLP.

    With a grandfather in the very early Movement, a whole Victorian branch of the family in the DLP and a father who was passionately anti-communist and a Santamaria fan, I can hardly claim no taint from the aftermath. But, in my maturer years, I think Mannix’s approach to things might be summed up as alternately contrarian and mischievous.

    Sincere at Irish heart, no doubt. And even he appears to have eventually distanced himself, ever so subtlely, from his famous protege.
