Cardinal Murphy-O’Connor's reaction to the news that the Pope is in a “very grave” state.

posted on 01 April 2005
The Cardinal said:

BEGINS

We are all thinking and praying for the Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, at this time. As far as we can tell, he is approaching the last days or hours of his long pontificate. It is not only my prayers and those of Catholics which are being offered, but those of fellow Christians and countless others who have grown to respect and admire this man, who has been in so many ways a witness and extraordinarily important moral voice for the world.

ENDS
Notes:
The Cardinal will be saying Mass at 5.30pm at the Cathedral, whatever the news during the day.
