VATICAN CITY, FEB 4, 2006 (VIS) - Made public today was a Letter from the Pope to Cardinal Javier Lozano Barragan, president of the Pontifical Council for Health Care Ministry, appointing him as special papal envoy to celebrations marking the fourteenth World Day of the Sick, due to be held in the city of Adelaide, Australia, on February 11. In his letter, which is written in Latin, Benedict XVI underscores the central theme of the forthcoming Day - care of the sick, especially those afflicted by mental problems - calling for their dignity to be respected and for prayers on their behalf.
   The delegation accompanying Cardinal Lozano Barragan is made up of two representatives from the archdiocese of Adelaide: Msgrs. James O'Loughlin, pastor at Salisbury, and Vincent Tiggeman, judicial vicar emeritus.
