This morning, September 9th, our confrere, the Cardinal Velasio de Paolis, passed away has after a year of painful disease.

«We commend him to the Lord of Life, whom Cardinal Velasio served especially through his Theological-canonical teaching, helping to prepare many generations of priests, and by devoting himself with competence, abnegation and simplicity to carry on all the tasks to him entrusted by the Holy Father as Bishop and Cardinal at the service of the Universal Church.

While offering our prayers for him, who has gone back to the Father’s house, let us also ask for his intercession in favor of our Religious family».
