Wa, 02 September, 2022 / 10:06 pm (ACI Africa).
The new Ghanaian Cardinal who is expected to undergo heart surgery in Rome has expressed gratitude to the people of God praying for his “complete and full recovery”.
Richard Kuuia Cardinal Baawobr was admitted at Santo Spirito Hospital in Rome just before the August 27 Consistory during which he was to receive a red biretta from Pope Francis alongside 19 others from across the globe.
In a Thursday, September 1 letter addressed to all delegates who accompanied him to Rome for the August 27 Consistory, Cardinal Baawobr announces the postponement of the Thanksgiving Mass that had been scheduled to take place in his Episcopal See of Wa, Ghana, on September 24.
“I send you greetings from Holy Spirit hospital (Ospedale di Santo Spirito in Sassia) in Rome where I am fast recovering thanks to God, the medical experts and your dedicated prayers,” Cardinal Baawobr says in his one-page letter shared with ACI Africa, and adds, “I am truly appreciative of your support.”
He “wholeheartedly” thanks the people of God “for your prayers for my complete and full recovery.”
