Following the death of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Administrator of the Archdiocese has written a letter of condolence to the Queen assuring her of prayers on this sad occasion. The text of the letter follows:

 

9 April 2021

Your Majesty,

On behalf of the Catholics of the Archdiocese of Glasgow, I write to assure you of our prayers for the gentle repose of your beloved husband. May his soul rest in peace.

Our prayers, too, for Your Majesty, your family, and all who mourn the passing of the Duke of Edinburgh; may you experience the hope and consolation which we find in our shared faith in the Risen Lord.

With my deep respect, prayers and best wishes,

Monsignor Hugh Bradley

Archdiocesan Administrator, Sede vacante

Meanwhile the Holy Father Francis has also sent a message of condolence.

Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin wrote in a telegram addressed to Queen Elizabeth:

“Recalling Prince Philip’s devotion to his marriage and family, his distinguished record of public service and his commitment to the education and advancement of future generations, His Holiness commends him to the merciful love of Christ our redeemer.

“Upon you and upon all who grieve his loss in the sure hope of the resurrection, the Holy Father invokes the Lord’s blessings of consolation and peace."

‘Even from the rubble of our hearts - we all know how much rubble fills our hearts - even from the rubble of our hearts God can create a work of art. Even from the ruined fragments of our humanity God is preparing a new story ...’

-Pope Francis, Easter Vigil 2021

Happy Easter!

A Year of St Joseph has been proclaimed by the Holy Father Francis in honour of the 150th anniversary of the saint’s proclamation as patron of the Universal Church by Pope Pius IX on Dec. 8, 1870.

Pope Francis said he was establishing the year so that “every member of the faithful, following his example, may strengthen their life of faith daily in the complete fulfillment of God’s will.”

To mark the Archbishop's month's mind, Monsignor Hugh Bradley, our Archdiocesan Administrator  offered a Mass in the Cathedral. He recalled the Archbishop with these lovely words ...

When I received the phone call from Canon Gerry Tartaglia to inform me that the Archbishop had died the sense of shock was immediate, closely followed by deep sorrow and feelings of loss. Personal loss and diocesan loss.

Over these four weeks I have been moved and impressed by the number of people who have reached out to the Archdiocese, to me personally, to convey their sadness at the death of Archbishop Philip and their gratitude for his presence in their lives. Truly, the life and death of each of us has its influence on others, even to an extent that we might never suspect. I’m sure that Archbishop Philip would have been humbled by the sentiments of affection and loss that have been expressed by so many.

Pope Francis has expressed his sorrow and solidarity with the Archdiocese in a message received today from Cardinal Parolin, the Holy Father's Secretary of State. The message reads:

"His Holiness Pope Francis was deeply saddened to learn of the untimely death of Archbishop Philip Tartaglia, and he offers heartfelt condolence and the assurance of his spiritual closeness to the clergy, religious and lay faithful of the Archdiocese of Glasgow.

Technology offers us the possibility of assisting at Mass even when we cannot be physically present.

Even though it is now possible to celebrate Mass with a congregation once more, strict limits mean not all who would wish to go to Mass can find a place. Therefore parishes will continue to reach out through digital means to those who cannot come to church.
