18 Jun – Death of Cardinal Winning – Statement
DEATH OF CARDINAL THOMAS WINNING
DR SEÁN BRADY
ARCHBISHOP OF ARMAGH
18 JUNE, 2001
I am deeply saddened by the death of Cardinal Winning of Glasgow. His death came as a great shock at a time when we were still coming to terms with the news of his heart attack one week ago.
Cardinal Winning will be greatly missed as a person of deep faith and total commitment to the care of his people. His lively wit and warm friendship endeared him to those who knew him.
He was a courageous leader who worked tirelessly and fearlessly in the service of the Church.
I offer sympathy to his family and to the priests and Catholic people of Glasgow and of Scotland on their great loss. May he rest in peace.
