"The serenity and warmth of this visit is the context in which considerations of the future will take place. They will not be influenced by untruthful reports in the media." The Archbishop of Cardiff was accompanied on his visit to Rome by the Archbishop of Birmingham, The Most Reverend Vincent Nichols. Archbishop Ward added: "I am deeply grateful to Archbishop Nichols for his companionship during my visit to Rome. Archbishop Nichols said: "I have known Archbishop Ward for many years now and I was pleased to accompany him on this personal visit to Rome. The discussions we held were constructive and helpful."
