Papal condolences following death of Australian cardinal

Catholic World News - August 05, 2014

Pope Francis has sent a telegram of condolence to the Archdiocese of Sydney’s apostolic administrator following the death of Cardinal Edward Clancy, who governed the archdiocese from 1983 until 2001.

He added, “I offer my heartfelt condolences, together with the assurance of my prayers, to you and to all the faithful of the archdiocese,” the Pope wrote in his August 4 telegram.

“I join you in commending the late cardinal’s soul to God the Father of mercies, with gratitude for his years of episcopal ministry and his wise pastoral leadership of the Archdiocese of Sydney, as seen in his concern for the needs of the poor, his support for Catholic education and his broad ecumenical and civic vision.”
