TELEGRAM FOR THE DEATH OF CARDINAL BEVILACQUA 
 
VATICAN CITY, 1 FEB 2012 (VIS) - The Holy Father has sent a telegram to Archbishop Charles Chaput O.F.M. Cap. of Philadelphia, 
U.S.A., for the death of Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua, former archbishop of that archdiocese who died yesterday at the age of 88. 
 
The Holy Father writes: "Having learned with sadness of the death of Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua, archbishop emeritus of 
Philadelphia, I offer my heartfelt condolences 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 among
Christ's flock in Philadelphia, his longstanding commitment to social justice and the pastoral care of immigrants, and his expert contribu-
tion to the revision of the Church's law in the years following Vatican Council II. To you, and to all the clergy, religious and laity of the 
Church in Philadelphia, and to the members of his family, I cordially impart my apostolic blessing as a pledge of consolation and peace 
in our Lord Jesus Christ".
