In so doing, we feel much more obliged to provide guidance for our fellow compatriots,” Bishop Nimely said.“We painstakingly evaluated all the presidential aspirants on the basis of love for nation, patriotism, demonstrated capacity, sober-mindedness and a national vision in which every individual’s vision is reflected, and found Dr. Jones as unmatched,” he said.Bishop Nimely noted that the above-mentioned characteristics are virtues befitting a national leader that will lead “us as a nation from the valley of despair and hopelessness to a veranda of possibilities and hopefulness,” and as such the group has resolved to support the presidential aspirations of Dr. Joseph Mills Jones.“We are prepared, when the time comes, to galvanize more support and campaign for you, Dr. Jones, everywhere to win the October 10 presidential elections. We will leave no stone unturned; we stand by you, Dr. Jones, for you are the hope of Liberia,” Bishop Nimely said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Dr. J.

BISHOP HEGARTY ‘LOOKING WELL’ AT ORDINATION OF ARCHBISHOP MARTIN

first_imgFORMER Raphoe and Derry bishop Seamus Hegarty was ‘looking very well’ when he made a rare public appearance on Sunday.Bishop Hegarty joined current and former bishops and clergy from around Ireland in Armagh for the ordination of Mgr Eamon Martin as the new assistant Archbishop of Armagh.Archbishop Martin will succeed Cardinal Sean Brady as Archbishop of Armagh when he retires in two years’ time. As part of the ordination Mass Bishop Hegarty and retired bishops Edward Daly and Francis Lagan laid hands on the head of Dr Martin.It was the first time Kilcar-born Bishop Hegarty had been seen in public for many months.In November 2011 he issued a statement saying that, having been diagnosed with “a condition which is, unfortunately, irreversible and progressive”, he had submitted his resignation because he was no longer able to fulfil his role as diocesan bishop.Pope Benedict accepted the resignation just two weeks later. “He looked very well in Armagh,” said one Donegal woman who was there on Sunday afternoon.“Whatever his condition, he certainly appeared to be coping very well.”Bishop Hegarty was a controversial figure in Donegal and Derry over how he handled child sex abuse allegations against a number of priests. BISHOP HEGARTY ‘LOOKING WELL’ AT ORDINATION OF ARCHBISHOP MARTIN was last modified: April 22nd, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BISHOP HEGARTY ‘LOOKING WELL’ AT ORDINATION OF ARCHBISHOP MARTINlast_img read more
