Cardinal O'Brien congratulates Archbishop Vincent Nichols

Commenting on   the announcement that Archbishop Vincent Nichols is to become the next Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Keith O'Brien said;

"On behalf of the Bishops of Scotland, I offer my sincere congratulations to Archbishop Vincent Nichols on his appointment by Pope Benedict XVI as the next Archbishop of Westminster, in succession to Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O Connor.
In various ways many of us have got to know Archbishop Vincent over the years.   I fondly look back to my early years as Archbishop as a member of the Bishops Liaison Committee, linking closely the Bishops Conferences of England and Wales, Scotland and Ireland “ when Monsignor Vincent was then General Secretary of the Bishops Conference of England and Wales.
Obviously, now I look forward to ever increasing collaboration with him and promise him my help and support in every way possible together with the assurance of my prayers."
