To Monsignor Peter Comensoli
Archdiocese of Sydney
I was saddened to learn of the death of Cardinal Edward Bede Clancy, Archbishop Emeritus of Sydney, and I offer my heartfelt condolences, together with the assurance of my prayers, to you and to all the faithful of the Archdiocese. 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. To all present at the Mass of Christian Burial and to all who mourn Cardinal Clancy in the hope of the Resurrection, I cordially impart my Apostolic Blessing as a pledge of strength and consolation in the Lord.
