VATICAN CITY, SEP 30, 2006 (VIS) - The Holy Father sent a telegram to Cardinal Marc Ouellet, Archbishop of Quebec, Canada, on hearing of yesterday's demise of Cardinal Louis-Albert Vachon, Emeritus of this archdiocese.

  Benedict XVI wrote: "I wish to express my union with you in prayer with the Archdiocese of Quebec and the family of the deceased. I pray that the Lord welcome this zealous shepherd, who consecrated his life at the service of Christ and the Church, into the Kingdom of Peace and Light. A man of faith and culture, all through his ministry, he tried to strengthen the quality of the Christian life of those people he was in charge of and to have his missionary spirit grow. As a sign of comfort, Cardinal, I give you my apostolic blessing, as well to your auxiliaries, priests, deacons, consecrated persons, the faithful of the archdiocese and all those who will participate in the funeral".
