From The Most Revd Dr Richard Clarke:

‘As Archbishop–designate of Armagh, it is a genuine pleasure to extend my very best wishes to Bishop Justin Welby on his appointment as Archbishop–designate of Canterbury, and to assure him of my prayers and my very best wishes. I wish him God’s blessing in all that he undertakes in his new responsibilities and assure him of my personal support as I look forward to a new friendship in the fellowship of the Gospel.’
