Kelly praises outgoing James Jones28 January 2013
The Archbishop of Liverpool has praised his Anglican counterpart, James Jones, following the news that Bishop Jones is to retire as Bishop of Liverpool in August.
Archbishop Patrick Kelly commended the Anglican leader for his faith and his chairing of the inquiry into "the horror which was Hillsborough", the 1989 football disaster in which 96 people died.
Archbishop Kelly also revealed that he reached his decision to submit his resignation to Pope Benedict XVI after Bishop Jones visited him in hospital last month where he was recovering from a slight stroke.
He said he spent time talking and praying in his hospital ward with Bishop James, whom he said was "for me a Father in God".
Bishop Jones will remain as adviser to the Home Secretary on Hillsborough, and continue to write and broadcast.
