Cardinal promises prayers for Nuncio

Cardinal Keith O'Brien has sent his best wishes to the Pope's ambassador in Britain Archbishop Faustino Sainz Muñoz, who suffered a stroke yesterday.   Archbishop Sainz Muñoz, the Apostolic Nuncio is receiving medical care in hospital in London.

Cardinal O Brien said;

"I have advised the members of our Conference letting them know of the Numcio's illness and also asking for their prayers."

The Cardinal added:

"The Nuncio has been a great friend to us all here in Scotland, we have always welcomed his presence among us, most recently at the Mass in Glasgow on 21 March 2010 to mark the 5th anniversary of the Election of Pope Benedict XVI.   On behalf of the Catholics of Scotland, I offer him the promise of our prayers for a steady recovery."


ENDS
