New Auxiliary For Glasgow – But Why Doesn’t Archbishop Tartaglia Resign?

New Auxiliary For Glasgow – But Why Doesn’t Archbishop Tartaglia Resign?

Archbishop TartagliaPope Francis has agreed to appoint an auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Glasgow. The new bishop will assist Archbishop Tartaglia who turns 65 in January. The Archbishop asked the Pope for an auxiliary following his health scare earlier this year… Source


If the Archbishop of Glasgow is not able to fulfil his office, due to poor health – for which our sympathy – then, surely the right thing to do is to resign? Having an auxiliary running the show can’t be good for the Archdiocese.  The clergy already feel they are neglected, with sources telling Catholic Truth that priests feel dissatisfied with the current situation,  so the way forward, it seems to us amateurs, is to allow a “new brush” to “sweep [the archdiocese] clean”.  Well?  What do YOU think?

      I’ve just looked at that and there is this question and the minister’s answer:

      Joseph Lewis Reid Hi Alex. How do you propose the Scottish Government can improve the safety of LGBT residents in Scotland? Especially with trans* people still facing lots of violence according to the most recent Equality Scotland report. Thanks!

      The Scottish Government: We are implementing revisions to the Same Sex Marriage Act in relation to the needs of Transgender people. The focus is on educating people on the needs of the Transgender community and tightening our laws when it comes to dealing with any kinds of violence, abuse or inappropriate behaviour. Thanks Alex.

      There’s also a few questions about the Named Person Scheme if you click on where it says 25 more questions.

      I’ll post this on the NP thread as well in case anyone else wants to question Alex Neil.

        Thanks for re-posting that Facebook link. I should have posted it on the NP thread in the first place. I’ve apologised over there as well – so humble, LOL !
