Communiqué from the Archdiocese on Archbishop Gabriel’s health

On January 27 Archbishop Gabriel underwent a surgical operation which had been planned for some time. He was released from hospital on 2 February and after a short convalescence resumed his duties at the headquarters of the Archdiocese on February 22. The operation went well, a lung tumour was removed, postoperative test results are satisfactory and doctors say they are confident.
To prevent a further recurrence, they suggested a course of chemotherapy. During this period, the diary of Bishop Gabriel will be reduced in order to avoid any increase in fatigue and to enable a full recovery. Furthermore, Bishop Gabriel wished to thank all the clergy and faithful of the Archdiocese who supported him in this difficult time and continue to support him by their prayers and affection.
