The Vatican has announce that our beloved Cardinal is to be given an Auxiliary to assist His Eminence in running the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh. This has been mooted for a number of months and I am glad to hear that His Holiness has now accepted Cardinal O'Brien's workload (not to mention his health) is taking its toll.
The announcement as to who the Auxiliary Bishop actually is will be announced on Tuesday 8th May at noon (European time).
Tomorrow's announcement may well set the tone for the future as Scotland replaces two thirds of the episcopate in the next year or so.
Please keep both in your prayers tonight.
