White smoke ascending

Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum.

The Very Reverend Gregor Duncan, Bishop-Elect of Glasgow and Galloway.

Yesterday I was very proud of my Church and my Diocese. The electoral process for the episcopal vacancy was approached with deep, prayerful seriousness, and trust that the Holy Spirit would guide us to a good decision. The joy at the outcome was matched by pastoral concern for those candidates who had not been chosen.

Congratulations, Gregor!

And well done everybody, especially +David, who guided us through the whole process with impeccable clarity, good humour, patience and calm.
