Pakistani archbishop hospitalized; misses pallium ceremony
Catholic World News - June 29, 2012
A Pakistani archbishop who was scheduled to receive the pallium from Pope Benedict XVI on June 29 was forced to cancel his planned trip to Rome when he was hospitalized with pneumonia.
Archbishop Joseph Coutts, who was appointed in January to head the Karachi archdiocese, remains in a hospital in that city, but is expected to make a full recovery. He will receive the pallium from a representative of the Holy Father when he returns to full health.
