Archbishop of Glasgow to govern Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh
The Most Revd Philip Tartaglia will take over until a new Archbishop is appointed following the resignation of Cardinal Keith O'Brien.
The Catholic Archbishop of Glasgow has been chosen to govern the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh following the resignation of Cardinal Keith O'Brien.
The Pope made the announcement today and the Most Revd Philip Tartaglia will be in the post until a new Archbishop is appointed.
Archbishop Tartaglia said: "These are painful and distressing times for the Archdiocese, I also feel pained and distressed. With the grace of God, I will do my very best to oversee and govern the Archdiocese until the appointment of a new Archbishop. I ask for your prayers."
Cardinal O'Brien is facing allegations of inappropriate behaviour dating back to the 1980s, which he strongly denies.
