STATEMENT FROM ARCHBISHOP VINCENT NICHOLS

The Most Reverend Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Birmingham, said:

"The Archdiocese of Birmingham will be at prayer for their late Archbishop Maurice. He was much loved by so many who admired his achievements and his humour. He always gave me his full support, for which I am grateful.

Characteristically he bore his last illness with dignity and calm, with his strong faith and trust in the Lord so much to the fore. May the Lord welcome this faithful servant with love and mercy. May he rest in peace."
