Cardinal Tagle had recovered from COVID-19, according to a report.
Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, the Prefect of the Vatican Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, had recovered from coronavirus disease (COVID-19), according to a report on Wednesday.
Quoting the Pontificio Collegio Filippino (PCF), CBCP News reported that PCF Rector Fr. Gregory Gaston said that Cardinal Tagle’s recovery was “a great joy for the whole Church”.
Gaston said that God wanted Cardinal Tagle to continue serving in the Vatican’s office for the Missions in order for him to bring God’s Good News of love, peace, joy, forgiveness, justice, and reconciliation — all of which the world need in a special way these days.
More than 30 priests and staff at the Pontificio Collegio Filippino, where Cardinal Tagle had been residing since arriving in Rome last February, tested negative for coronavirus disease.
To recall, Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle was the first Roman curia dicastery head who tested positive for coronavirus disease.
Gaston also said that the Collegio Filippino in Rome had witnessed Cardinal Tagle’s hard work, dedication, and prayers, adding that the PCF wished him all the best in his short visit to the Philippines in order for him to rest a bit and be with his family back home.
