17 Jan – Bishop Diarmuid Martin appointment as Representative of the Holy See to the UN
APPOINTMENT OF BISHOP DIARMUID MARTIN
AS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE HOLY SEE TO THE UNITED NATIONS
STATEMENT BY CARDINAL SEÁN BRADY
I am delighted to hear the news that Bishop Diarmuid Martin has been appointed as Representative of the Holy See to the Office of the United Nations in Geneva.
The outstanding work which he has carried out in Rome for many years, first at the Pontifical Council for the Family and more recently as Secretary of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, means that Archbishop Martin is ideally prepared to be the Permanent Observer of the Holy Father in this important post. I wish him success and God’s blessing.
