Statement by Archbishop Seán Brady on the Death of Cardinal Winning

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 his Church.

I offer sympathy to his family and to the priests and Catholic people of Glasgow and Scotland on their great loss. May he rest in peace.

ENDS
