Cardinal Vincent Asks for Prayers for Cardinal Cormac

Cardinal Vincent wrote to the Bishops of England and Wales and to all priests in our diocese to ask for prayers for Cardinal Cormac, whose health 'has taken a defining turn' and who is now in hospital.

Honouring Cardinal Cormac's wish to let the clergy and people know 'from his own hand', Cardinal Vincent said, 'It is my privilege to do so.'

Cardinal Vincent added: 'As you will know so clearly, for Cardinal Cormac these loving prayers are a source of great strength and comfort as he calmly ponders on all that lies ahead, all in God's good time.

'May the Lord strengthen him in faith and trust and may the prayers of the Church, which he loves so much, comfort and uphold him.'
