The Queen Mother's Death

posted on 30 March 2002
On hearing of the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, Archbishop of Westminster and President of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, said:

'The whole nation and beyond will mourn a great and gracious lady. The Queen Mother bore the virtues so beloved by the British people of courage and steadfastness, and especially throughout the Second World War in her role as Queen Consort. She will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy and prayers, and those of the whole Catholic community, are with Her Majesty the Queen and all the royal family. I will be offering Mass for the repose of her soul.'
