Patriarchate mourns Cardinal Foley’s death

      

His Beatitude Fouad Twal, Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, Auxiliary Bishops, clergy, religious, and faithful of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem (Israel, Palestinian Territories, Jordan and Cyprus) are deeply saddened by the death of His Eminence  John Patrick Cardinal Foley, Grand Master Emeritus of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem on Sunday December 11, 2011.

We remember with gratitude his many years of dedicated service for the Christians of the Holy Land, especially in being a strong supporter of the Bethlehem University. We express our condolences to Archbishop Edwin Frederick O'Brien, Pro Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher and the Knights and Ladies of the Order worldwide.

The Patriarchate also presents its condolences to the relatives of Cardinal Foley, to all who know and respect him, and all those he loved and served.

In spiritual union with all who mourn his death, we pray and commend him to the infinite mercy of God.  "Eternal rest grant unto Cardinal Foley, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him."
