Retired Irish cardinal seriously ill

Cardinal Cahal Daly

Cardinal Cahal Daly

The Archbishop Emeritus of Armagh, Cardinal Cahal Brendan Daly (92), was taken to hospital on Monday.  Cardinal Seán Brady, Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, issued the following statement yesterday:

"I visited Cardinal Daly in hospital yesterday evening.  Cardinal Daly is seriously ill and is being treated at the coronary intensive care unit of Belfast City Hospital.  He is being lovingly supported by his family and friends.

"At this time I ask Catholics to pray for Cardinal Daly, that he may be given all the graces that he needs.  While this is a sad time for all, we should be heartened and nourished by Cardinal Daly's motto which is 'Jesus Christ, yesterday and today' (Hebrews 13:8).

"I know that throughout Ireland today people will be remembering Cardinal Daly in their prayers."
