Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster

Facebook Q&A with Cardinal Vincent and Archbishop Justin Welby

On the feast of St Augustine of Canterbury, 27 May 2016, Cardinal Vincent and Archbishop Justin Welby took part in a live Facebook Q&A from Lambeth Palace. The brief session began with a conversation about unity in a nine-day prayer vigil ahead of Pentecost as a Christian witness to the world. They both spoke about a renewal of Christian confidence that comes from the presence of the Holy Spirit.

During the session, they responded to questions that had been submitted via Facebook. And, fittingly, they ended the broadcast by praying together a prayer for Christian unity.

Cardinal Vincent was attending a symposium on St Thomas Becket at Lambeth Palace hosted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, where he gave an address about the significant of the English saint and martyr on the importance of dialogue between faith communities and the state.
