This summer I decided to take holiday time far away from Edmonton. I went to Ireland with family and friends. While visiting Galway Cathedral, I stopped to browse in the cathedral bookstore. There I purchased an interesting book on Catholic ethical reflections on nuclear power titled Fukushima. It was by an Irish priest, Sean McDonagh, who is a leading Catholic environmental writer. As I sat down, many miles from home to do a quick browse through the book, I came across a section on the Alberta bishops and their June 2009 statement, Pastoral Reflections on Nuclear Energy in Alberta.
