Pope Francis Sends Message to the Catholic People of Scotland

Below is a letter by Cardinal Bertone to Archbishop Gerhard Muller (Prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of Faith) who will be visiting Scotland this week.  In it, Cardinal Bertone expresses the good wishes of the Pope to Catholic people in Scotland with a special message for those involved in Catholic Education.

VATICAN CITY

Your Excellency,

His Holiness Pope Francis was pleased to learn that you are to journey to Scotland for the Cardinal Winning Lecture at Glasgow University, and a meeting with the Catholic clergy.

Just as his beloved predecessor, Benedict XVI, strongly advocated Catholic education in Scotland during Mass in Glasgow in 2010, Pope Francis is happy to add his voice in support of Catholic education in the country.   He asks you to convey his greetings to Catholic teachers and to those preparing them at Glasgow University, and his good wishes for the success of the Saint Andrew’s Foundation for Catholic teacher education.   His sincerely hopes that the initiative will help promote and improve the quality of instruction – formal, catechetical and above all spiritual – given to future educators in the country’s Catholic schools.

In particular, His Holiness asks you to greet warmly all the Catholics of Scotland, especially the priests whom you will meet during your visit.   Aware of recent challenges and of the crosses they have patiently borne, His Holiness earnestly prays for a renewal among them of truth, mutual pardon and charity through fidelity to the gospel message of conversion, for the good of all Scotland’s Catholics.

Invoking the intercession of Saint Andrew and Saint Margaret, the Holy Father willingly imparts his Apostolic Blessing as a pledge of courage and strength in the Lord.

Yours sincerely in Christ,
Tarcisio Cardinal Bertone
