Cardinal welcomes 1st state visit of Irish president to UK

Catholic World News - April 11, 2014

Cardinal Seán Brady, Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, has issued a statement welcoming the first state visit of an Irish president to the United Kingdom.

“The historic events taking place in London are ... the result of a long process of respectful dialogue and patience-- I hope they bear the fruits of greater respect on all sides,” the cardinal said in his statement. “I hope these positive relations will continue to deepen and improve and serve to promote a fuller healthy normalization of conditions here in Northern Ireland.”

“I invite the faithful of our islands to join with me in prayer for the strengthening of the bonds of friendship between our peoples,” he added.
