Could Pope Francis be coming to Glasgow?
The Archbishop of Glasgow, Philip Tartaglia, has written to Pope Francis,inviting him to the city in order to mark the 400th anniversary of St John Ogilvie, who was executed at Glasgow Cross on 10th March 1615.
The Archbishop, in his letter, said: "It would be wonderful if you could come to Glasgow for a day for this unique event" and said he envisages the visit as being of "purely religious-pastoral nature".
The letter continues: "I know this is short notice for the visit of a Pope....I present this request to you without any expectations or sense of entitlement. I do not even know if it is practical! However a visit would be such a grace."
How great it would be to have Pope Francis in our dear green city of Glasgow! Please pray for a positive response to our Archbishop's invitation!
