Archbishop Justin said:
Colin Bennetts was an outstanding Bishop, a wonderful parish priest and an exceptional friend and mentor to a huge number of people. Having known him at Coventry I was indebted beyond measure to him for wise advice and faithful prayer. Travelling with him was a pleasure, observing him a lesson. He faced, with his wonderful family, his last illness with faith in Christ. I will miss him and pray for Veronica and the rest of the family.
