Cardinal urges Vietnamese to testify to late prelate’s holiness

Catholic World News - January 05, 2012

The cardinal archbishop of Ho Chi Minh City is urging Catholics who knew Cardinal Francois Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan (1928-2002) to testify to his holiness when a Vatican delegation for his beatification cause visits the Communist nation in March.

“I would like to invite you all to fervently pray for our beloved cardinal’s beatification and canonization process to be completed soon,” added Cardinal Jean Baptiste Pham Minh Man.

Imprisoned for 13 years, Cardinal Nguyen Van Thuan served as coadjutor archbishop of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) from 1975 to 1994 and as president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace from 1998 until his death.
