The Age reports death of "Mild Mannered Archbishop" Little on page 4

John Button (one of our ex-pollies who died the same day) got front page.

Anyway, here are some of the things the late Archbishop's friends say about him in the article:
"I had 13 lovely years sitting opposite him at breakfast every morning. He was a holy man. He loved God and God's people. He was always fearful of hurting priests, and found it hard to correct or reprimand a priest." (Ballarat Bishop Peter Connors — Sir Frank's private secretary, then Vicar-General, then auxiliary bishop)

"The priests liked him. He understood Vatican II (1960s reforms of the Catholic Church) and its spirit, and was also an intelligent bishop and a reader." (Retired priest Eric Hodgens)
