Welsh bishop apologizes to soldier’s father for funeral remarks
Catholic World News - August 04, 2010
A Welsh bishop has offered an apology after a late soldier’s father criticized him for calling for increased military funding during his son’s funeral Mass.
“If what I said in my sermon added to Mr Robinson's distress, which I did not intend, I ask him to accept my apologies, without excuse or reservation,” said Bishop Tom Burns of Menevia.
