On hearing of the death of Cardinal Thomas Winning, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor said:
'I am deeply saddened to hear of the death of Cardinal Thomas Winning. He was an outstanding leader of the church in Scotland and beyond. His humour, dedication, utter loyalty, and unstinting defence of the Catholic Church will long be remembered.
'I deeply mourn a close friend. Catholics in England and Wales will join with those in Scotland in prayer for the repose of the soul of a good shepherd, a good pastor. May he rest in peace.'
Mass will be said for the repose of the soul of Cardinal Winning by Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor in Westminster Cathedral on Monday 18 June, at 5.30pm.
