“The death of Archbishop Desmond Tutu will bring sadness to countless people worldwide both inside and outside the churches.

“His consistent moral stance for justice and equality in a South Africa that made multiple transitions in his lifetime is something he shared with personal generosity on the international stage.

“He became synonymous with the needs of and respect for the marginalized, the rejected and the forgotten by his strong voice and strategic coherence.

“His family will mourn him most deeply as will his church and his fellow countrymen and women.

“On behalf of the United Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough I wish to add my gratitude for his spirituality and for his courage in the face of many obstacles to the breaking in of the Kingdom of God in the world in which we live.”
