21 Jan – Cardinal Connell appointment as Cardinal

THE APPOINTMENT OF ARCHBISHOP DESMOND CONNELL
AS CARDINAL
STATEMENT BY CARDINAL SEÁN BRADY

I welcome the news that Pope John Paul II has chosen Archbishop Desmond Connell to become a member of the College of Cardinals. I congratulate Archbishop Connell on his appointment.

He has given outstanding leadership to the Catholic Church in Dublin over the last thirteen years and I am confident that he will provide excellent assistance to the Holy Father in his new role.
