Statement By Archbishop Michael Jackson, The Archbishop Of Dublin, On The Appointment Of Monsignor Eamon Martin As Coadjutor Archbishop Of Armagh
Added on 18/01/2013
I welcome the appointment of Monsignor Eamon Martin as Coadjutor Archbishop of Armagh and wish him well in his work. Monsignor Martin brings with him a wide experience of ministry in the Diocese of Derry over the last 25 years.
I would like to affirm his desire to work with those of us who are members of other Christian traditions. I respect and welcome his intention to engage in dialogue and hope that this will issue in shared action. I would also like to respond with my own encouragement that our exchanges among the churches may enrich the life and dignity of all, irrespective of their faith tradition. I look forward to fruitful engagement as we come to know each other.
I would also like to record my appreciation of my longstanding personal friendship with Cardinal Brady and thank him for all the good things that he has contributed to the relationship between Churches in Ireland.
