VATICAN CITY 28 May 2022 (NRom)

His Eminence Angelo Raffaele Cardinal Sodano, retired Secretary of State of the Vatican City and Dean Emeritus of the Sacred College of Cardinals of the Roman Communion died yesterday at age 94. His Eminence was godfather of His Holiness and Eminence the Papa-Catholicos and His Eminence Cardinal Duke v.u.z. Westphalia. Papa Rutherford I said, "Although I am saddened by this news, I am even more thankful that such a devoted servant of Christ left such lasting, positive, tradutional influence on the Holy Church. His Eminence's kindness and support of me will never be forgotten. Indeed, the Imperial Roman Church, Gallo-Russo-Byzantine Catholicate, and the Anglican Patriarchate are all his lasting legacy."
