Petition For Prayer started this petition to The Bishops of Ireland

We, the undersigned Catholics of the island of Ireland request the following of our shepherds:

1) That permission* be granted to those priests who are not deterred by fear for their personal health to exercise for us the sacramental ministry for which they were ordained.

2) That those who lead us might make reasonable efforts to stand up in the face of secular opposition to unreasonable and unscientific restrictions on the faithful's participation in liturgical worship.

*The permission which is yours to give, of course your authority is not of this world, but neither is it subject to it should there be a moral conflict.

For those who in conscience understand the above requests to be unreasonable we humbly and simply request that every day in which participation in the celebration of the Mass and reception of Holy Communion is denied to the faithful of your diocese you might make a Holy Hour for those of us who would desire that same participation, and in this Holy Hour consider Who is before you and why He would deign to assume such a humble form.

We are your sheep and we are your soldiers. Shepherd us and we will follow. Lead us and we will fight. Leave us to wander in darkness without the Sacramental grace which is our lifeblood and what will become of your flock, of your army? What do your pastoral plans and evangelisation projects mean if we accept a regime that rates the importance of liturgical worship below wet pubs and restaurants? These same are not only are a luxury, but they do not and cannot implement the kind of safety measures that have been standard in public Masses.

Secular government has stripped away the lives of our children in the name of freedom. It has trampled on the sanctity of marriage and called the parody love. Do not now allow it to deny those who desire to receive and follow Jesus religious freedom and call it public health, when there is no factual evidence of the necessity of the measure, or its implementation being effective.
