St Macartin's Cathedral, Enniskillen
Sunday 9 November 1997
An excerpt from an address by the 
MOST REVEREND DR ROBIN EAMES,
ARCHBISHOP OF ARMAGH, PRIMATE OF ALL IRELAND
 

'Remembrance' is a word of many parts. It is one of the most emotive terms in our English language.
Like many words of deep meaning we tend to use it at times with little thought for its real significance.
It stands for human memories of the past, for memories of faces, voices, the touch of a hand, human
friendship - it stands for events and happenings in our family life or the life of our community - it stands
for images, pictures, impressions. It is a word of reflection - a sombre word, for our memories are
themselves a strange mixture of good and bad, happiness and sorrow. 
There are things in life we want to forget just as there are those we recall with pride and satisfaction.
'Remembrance' is that sort of word. Perhaps the real truth is that more important than what we remember
is how we remember - and what effect those memories have on us as people here and now.

As someone has written -  "remembrance is what makes us what we are ..."
