Cardinals wish Charles and Camilla happiness
Comment Email Print
¬†Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor and Cardinal Keith O'Brien both issued statements in response to the news of the Prince of Wales's forthcoming marriage to Mrs Camilla Parker-Bowles yesterday. The Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor said: "The Royal Family, with their unique role in our national life, are always assured of the goodwill and prayers of the Catholic community. I know that Catholics will join with me at this time in praying for the Prince of Wales and Mrs Parker-Bowles and in wishing them every happiness." Cardinal Keith O'Brien said: "I hope that the Prince of Wales and Mrs Parker-Bowles will find future happiness together. As the leader of the Roman Catholic Church in Scotland, I am saddened to think that were Mrs Parker-Bowles a Catholic, the Prince of Wales would by marrying her, automatically lose his right to accede to the Throne ≠ as would his heirs. "As the Scottish Executive currently, is quite rightly focusing attention on eradicating the blight of sectarianism, the time may be opportune to assess the impact of existing blatant anti-Catholic legislation and the extent to which its existence hinders progress in this effort."
