Cathedral of the Lady of the Assumption in Edinburgh (Scotland),
A long and complicated preparation which, in the end, did nothing. In Scotland too, as has already happened in England, the government asked the public to prepare for the restoration of the public and then to take a decision at the last moment. Disappointment and concern are expressed in a statement from the Scottish Bishops’ Conference. “Government’s decision to postpone until 23 July We are left dissatisfied and full of doubt to allow the opening of places of worship to allow the reopening of pubs, restaurants and theaters on 15 July. “
“Since the beginning of the lockdown, the Catholic Church has cooperated with the government,” add Bishop. “Three weeks ago we also presented precise protocols for the gradual restart of work without listening to any objections. The reopening of churches for personal prayers beginning on Monday 22 June has allowed us to develop all the procedures necessary to guarantee public safety. For all these reasons, delaying the resumption of mass seems an unjust decision. The Bishops’ Conference will communicate this approach to the Scottish Government as soon as possible ».
