from Archbishop John Wilson
on the death of the Duke of Edinburgh
On behalf of the Catholic Community of the Archdiocese of Southwark, I wish to express my profound sorrow at the news of the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.
In union with the entire nation, we mourn the loss of not only an esteemed and
respected member of the Royal Family, but also a man who exemplified the very
best qualities of courage, fortitude and loyalty. Although born into a very
different world, his example and witness leave us, here in this present age,
with a lasting and enduring legacy of the timeless paradigm of duty and
In this season of Eastertide, when we celebrate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus and his victory over death, we pray that His Royal Highness will rest in peace and rise in glory. We also remember in our prayers Her Majesty the Queen and all members of the Royal Family at this sad time, offering to them our sincerest condolences.
Archbishop of Southwark
