Following the death on Sunday 23 April at the Little Sister of the Poor Home in Edinburgh of Monsignor Patrick Grady, Cardinal Keith O Brien, speaking from Edinburgh, said:  

Monsignor Grady was one of the longest-serving and most dedicated priests in our Archdiocese. I personally have known him since my Ordination to the Priesthood in 1965 and lived in a certain awe and reverence of him. These feelings turned into a deep friendship following on my appointment as Archbishop in 1985. I still remember my first visit to the Cathedral House after my appointment when he handed over to me the keys of the Cathedral House and the keys of the Cathedral itself, saying to me: ˜These are now yours “ do with me what you will! .  

I re-appointed him Administrator of our Cathedral and Senior Vicar General and he ministered in this way to the Archdiocese and to myself until he retired. He was still a trusted adviser in his retirement and, with very many others, I now pray that God will grant him eternal rest .
