Comment Email Print
 Archbishop Keith O'Brien was been unanimously elected yesterday as President of the Scottish Bishop's Conference, making him the favourite to be Scotland's next Cardinal. The vote came at the end of a three-day meeting of Scottish bishops at Scotus College in Glasgow. The Northern Ireland-born Archbishop, 63, who came to Scotland as a child, was ordained a priest in Edinburgh in 1965. He was made Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh by the late Cardinal Gordon Gray in 1985. After his appointment, Archbishop O'Brien said: "I hope to be able to serve the Bishop's Conference to the best of my ability."
