Abbot Hugh Gilbert OSB to be Bishop of Aberdeen

DSCF2947


Say a prayer for the Abbot of Pluscarden, Hugh Gilbert OSB, who has been appointed Bishop of Aberdeen. A wise, holy man who has governed his Abbey with prudence and kindness, he has suffered the lot of many such religious down the ages, and been taken from his community for the benefit of the Church. I am sure that his brothers will be sorry that he has to go, and that he will be sad to leave them.

This is a very good appointment. In omnibus Deus glorificetur.
