VATICAN CITY, OCT 17, 2005 (VIS) - The Pope has sent a telegram of condolence for the death of Cardinal Giuseppe Caprio. The Italian cardinal, who passed away on Saturday a few weeks before his 91st birthday, was titular of the Church of Santa Maria della Vittoria, grand master emeritus of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, and president emeritus of the Prefecture for Economic Affairs of the Holy See.

  In his telegram, addressed to Maria Caprio, the Pope recalls the "long and rich experience of the lamented cardinal, as a zealous collaborator of five Popes ... who entrusted him with important and delicate tasks," and gives thanks to God "for his faithful and generous service to the Church and the Holy See."

  At 11 a.m. tomorrow, Tuesday October 18, the Holy Father will preside at a funeral Mass at the altar of the Cathedra in the Vatican Basilica.
