Catholics mourn Peter Hebblethwaite

THE CATHOLIC Media Office joins the rest of the Catholic Community in mourning the death on Sunday 18 December of Peter Hebblethwaite, one of the country's best known Catholic writers.

Peter's skill as a writer and observer of the Catholic Church was recognised by many outside the Church as well as by those who were enlightened, provoked, amused, criticised and inspired by him.

The depth of his knowledge and the clarity of his style ensured that the Church remained very much in the public eye, both through his acclaimed books on recent popes and through his contributions to a number of religious and secular papers.

It would be difficult for anyone to to fill the niche in the Church of today that Peter Hebblethwaite had carved for himself.

Our sincere condolences go to his wife Margaret and their children.

Catholic Media Office, London.
